I would like to build a list of the user names and configuration file locations
for the most common distributions which include NUT. So far I have:
Distrib User Config directory
debian nut /etc/nut/
opensuse upsd /etc/ups/
These will be used to produce more user-friendly tools and documentation for
NUT. If you use some other distribution, could you report
1. How does the distribution identify itself?
Suggestion: command grep ID /etc/os-release
2. Which non-root user is used to run the upsd and upsmon daemons?
Suggestion: command ps -ef | grep upsd | grep -v -E "grep|cupsd"
3. Where does the distribution place the NUT configuration files?
Suggestion 1: command locate upsd.conf | grep -E "^/etc" | grep -v cups
Suggestion 2: command ls -d /etc/*/* | grep "upsd.conf" | grep -v cups
I am particularly interested in Fedora, CentOS, Ubuntu, Mint, Arch and ***BSD.
My thanks for any help you can provide. Roger
