Description billypilgrim782001 2007-08-30 06:00:02 UTC
Cyber Power AE550 UPS is plugged in to the machine via USB.  Kernel
attaches to it as a HID, which prevents UPS software (NUT, Network UPS
Tools 2.0.4 in ports collection) from attaching to it.  Similar changes
have been patched into the kernel for MGE UPSes.

As far as I can tell there is no way to overcome this problem with
configuration or with code changes within NUT.

Fix: A change in the kernel so that it won't attach to the UPS as a HID is
needed.  I have attached patches with Vendor/Product info to accomplish
this.  The change has been tested and works correctly.
How-To-Repeat: Hook Cyber Power AE550 UPS up to machine via USB, and then try to
communicate with it with NUT in ports collection.  The latest release
of NUT, 2.2.0, also does not work.
