Description Tim Bishop freebsd_committer 2014-03-25 09:40:00 UTC
When shutting down the system use -p to make sure it's powered off. On
my system without this change it just sits there waiting to be turned
off, and I'd prefer it turned itself off rather than waiting for the
UPS to kill the power feed.

I can patch this locally if this isn't generally useful, but I'm not
sure what benefit there is to using -h over -p anyway?

Comment 2 Tim Bishop freebsd_committer 2014-03-25 12:01:02 UTC
Alternatively, maybe the port could treat
${PREFIX}/etc/apcupsd/apccontrol as a user-editable config file and not
add it to the pkg-plist? (ie. treat it like other config files with a
.sample one and testing for changes on package removal). Then it'd make
it possible to make changes like this and preserve them.

Revised patch

Here is a revised patch. Rather than making the specific change that I wanted it seems better to make all these configuration files user changeable without getting them overwritten during a package upgrade.

Maintainer reset.
Comment 5 Danilo G. Baio freebsd_committer 2017-06-15 14:02:05 UTC
Hi Tim.

The sample files are fine, but in apccontrol I think it's not.

> # WARNING: the apccontrol file will be overwritten every time you update your
> # apcupsd, doing `make install'. Your own customized scripts will _not_ be
> # overwritten. If you wish to make changes to this file (discouraged), you

What about an option to change this behavior before building?

The system is halted and the power is turned off (hardware support required) at the specified time.

${SHUTDOWN} -h now --> ${SHUTDOWN} -p now

I no longer have an APC UPS to test, nor do I really remember what I was trying to achieve 4 years ago. Maybe just changing -h to -p at build time is enough, as you say.

Comment 7 A.J. Kehoe IV (Nanoman) 2017-06-15 14:46:25 UTC
I also don't understand the benefit of using -h instead of -p.  In apccontrol, it's suggested that you can achieve this by creating a script called "/usr/local/etc/apcupsd/doshutdown", so this is what I've been doing to get the desired effect:

shutdown -p now
exit 99

Ok, thank you.

I will take a look on this and open a review with another PR's (patches).
