Cheers, Colin. apcupsd is derived from apcd by Pavel Korensky <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>, but unfortunately without a configuration file (many parameters selected at compile time) and without slave support. I thouroughly hacked apcd for private use adding the following features: - - Close and reopen logfiles on HUP signal. - - Make shutdown dependent on the remaining battery load. - - Slave uses init for shutdown. - - Master uses shutdown code from lates sysvinit (2.71) (Not mentioning many code cleanups) On Sat, 28 Jun 1997, Brian White <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: >I tried using "apcd" at one point which supported smart-signalling. >Unfortunately, it did system shutdown itself instead of telling the >system to shut down and this was unacceptable. I choose to run shutdown by itself because I had to assure that the last action on master is to shut down the ups. Instead I should probably follow the genpower approach and supply a small program that does this from the command line. Apart from this, apcd is ready as a debian package but I didn't find the time to upload it, feed the changes back to the upstream maintainer, etc. Whoever wants this package, drop me an email. A further project might be a program able to communicate with a java applet to enable monitoring the ups from any java capable browser. This might then be a complete functional replacement for APC's power-chute software, and even better because it will work over the net on any client. But I can't tell when time allows this...
