PostSubject: Installing a UPS.   Fri Mar 26, 2010 7:53 am

I installed a new UPS today to replace one that has seen too many power interruptions. For the first time I decided to try out hooking up the USB cable and seeing if SUSE could take advantage of having the shutdown feature working. I went to Software Manager and it notified me, without any search, of several packages such as nut, nut-classic and various UPS libraries to upgrade. So I accepted and installed. I notice the UPS is detected in Hardware but I do not see any program for managing how the thing would operate.

Any clues on how to configure? TIA.

What brand did you get. I know the APC branded ones are well supported, and I have one running well with gapcom. I also have a Belkin, but never got it to work right.

Well according to HWinfo it says:
Code:
51: USB 00.0: 0000 Unclassified device
  [Created at usb.122]
  UDI: /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/usb_device_5b8_0_noserial_if0
  Unique ID: Zj8l.hKaGq7Y5rH6
  Parent ID: pBe4.moLwSePIflE
  SysFS ID: /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:04.0/usb2/2-4/2-4:1.0
  SysFS BusID: 2-4:1.0
  Hardware Class: unknown
  Model: "Agiler UPS"
  Hotplug: USB
  Vendor: usb 0x05b8 "Agiler, Inc."
  Device: usb 0x0000 "UPS"
  Revision: "1.00"
  Driver: "usbhid"
  Driver Modules: "usbhid"
  Speed: 1.5 Mbps
  Module Alias: "usb:v05B8p0000d0100dc00dsc00dp00ic03isc01ip00"
  Config Status: cfg=no, avail=yes, need=no, active=unknown
  Attached to: #50 (Hub)
So its recognized as Agiler though the brand is Diablotex on the outside. The last line of Config Staus would seem to indicate cfg=no, avail=yes... that it could be setup. Just not sure what the steps would be.

Hmm.. I found knutclient which is a graphical KDE client for nut. I managed to load it from the .tar and do the make, make install and now have a program under Menu>System>Monitor. However it does not recognized the UPS and needs some settings. I will tinker some more unless anyone has a jimdandy approach.

Just tried knutsetting and failed on the ./ configure with
Code:
checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.2) (headers and libraries) not found. Please check your installation!

Installed various qt3 stuff and have advanced to
Code:
 checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.2) (library qt-mt) not found. Please check your installation!
trying to find qt-mt but have got nowhere so far. Have to keep researching.

hmm.. a
Code:
suse112:/home/matt # rpm -qa 'qt*' | sort

qt3-3.3.8b-93.1.x86_64

qtcurve-gtk2-32bit-0.68.0-2.3.1.x86_64
qtcurve-kde4-0.67.6-3.2.x86_64
does not show anything useful but
Code:
suse112:/home/matt # ls -l /usr/lib/libqt*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 2010-03-28 08:40 /usr/lib/libqt-mt.so.3 -> qt3/lib/libqt-mt.so.3
shows a link to qt3/lib/lbqt-mt.so.3 so I think I have all I need but it still will not compile the settings program. Bit out of my depth on this. Oh well back to Google. Sad

Well after reading nuts site (I notice the last date was in 2007) and trying some of the stuff there which does not correspond to the way nut is setup on the root openSUSE file system. I begin to think I will just remove the USB cord and go back to a dumb UPS system. Oh well. scratch

Well bummer. That's what I've had to do in the past too with my Belkins. Belkin has a linux monitoring client, but never got it to work right.
