Other init systems like launchd or systemd will monitor the PID of the program to restart it if necessary, so they work best when the driver doesn't fork.

My mistake - I misinterpreted the log you posted. Without the "-D" flag, the driver should go into the background in a matter of seconds, usually.

Can you run the driver under strace, and see where it gets stuck?

Or did you only run it with the "-D" flag? In that case, if you are getting "Connection refused" from "upsc", you might need to start "upsd" by hand.
