If you want  to use my packages, you will need to download and install them manually, using ( after downloading the needed packages ) a command similar to:

I was just emailing NUT-Dev about the latest (and CentOS 6) and was about to compile manually.

i'll check your packages out.

(I'd actually like to learn how to create packages for situations like this)

In the meantime, thanks for the RPM!
