My mistake - I misinterpreted the log you posted. Without the "-D" flag, the
driver should go into the background in a matter of seconds, usually.
Can you run the driver under strace, and see where it gets stuck?
Or did you only run it with the "-D" flag? In that case, if you are getting "Connection refused"
from "upsc", you might need to start "upsd" by hand.
Of course I did (-D) so (without,) works now. I assume if I just go
through the setup instructions on the NUT website, that'll make the
server automatically load this driver on boot. I did that before, even
with some differences between default and Slackware's unofficial
versions, even when having to note/change a few different things. That
was with USB UPSes, so maybe it'll be different with this serial port
one... forgot most the details, but it's not that hard after setting up
a few USB ones.
