Joe: Thank you for replying again! This is a learning experience for
me. I just finished getting at the WinPower Linux stuff. Not at all
what I expected! Everything seems to be JRE.  I didn't see any Linux
source files, etc., so now I assume that it is not open source and
this is not the software for me to learn how to "roll my own" RPM
with. With some other software, another day, I will begin to learn
about packaging. I just installed WinPower, the Software specified by
the UPS manufacturer, the old fashioned (non RPM way) which is highly
not recommended. After I send this email, I will try to configure it
and see if it works properly. If not, back to apcupsd and nut..... I'm
going to cut out the rest of your reply. I read part of a book  on
rpm.org so now I have the beginnings of understanding how to package
something. Your help is much appreciated! Lanny
