I just  installed the repo file for EPEL (and gave it a very low
priority). I installed nut and nut-client from EPEL. When I try to
start the ups daemon, I get the below error:

ups failed. The error was: Starting UPS driver controller: [FAILED]

Starting upsd: [FAILED]

Starting UPS monitor (master): [FAILED]

If I can't get apcupsd  or nut configured properly, then I will try
the WinPower software the UPS manufacturer (and many others) specify.
I have the tar ball on my hard drive (45.3 MB) and maybe I can "roll
my own" RPM for the first time.
