NUT - Network UPS Tools
I have installed the NUT package, but have found that the configuration interface is dumbing down the configuration a little too far.
Specifically i mean that it is giving a list of "known" UPS's and when selected configures nut as needed. However the UPS i am using (which uses the blazer_usb driver) isnt able to be configured. I looked through the nut.xml file and found that none of the options use this driver. I am able to manually configure the ups.conf file and nut works perfectly, however on reboot the file is overridden and im back to square one.
Whilst its nice for less experienced users to have a list of known UPS's (nut really has a steep learning curve), it would be very helpful to provide the alternative of selecting the driver yourself.
