What if you try nutdrv_qx without specifying megatec? (It should autodetect.)

If that doesn't work, please try to get some logs - they will look like this:


The author of the driver recommends a debug level of 5: "-DDDDD"

(Note that we are not looking for the debug output for upsdrvctl, but rather for nutdrv_qx. If you pass "-D" flags to upsdrvctl, it should tell you how to start the driver in debug mode instead.)
