Tango Icons © Tango Desktop Project. I'm guessing that this APC model just doesn't have the features that apctest is looking for, eh? apctest FATAL ERROR in device.c at line 68 Unable to create UPS lock file. Shut down apcupsd > first.
I found various references via Google and it seems there's a bug in the apcupsd software that makes it not release a lock file after a power failure.

Any Ideas? However, it flashes by so quickly on the monitor that I can't say for sure. One other clue is that apcaccess eeprom returns an error: FATAL ERROR in apcaccess.c at line 190 Your model does not support EPROM programming. ...is it possible that this APC model I never ran into that problem before except on MacOS X > 10.2.
First, here's the setup: Dell SC440 Debian Sarge; kernel 126.96.36.199 APC BackUPS 1500VA (XS series); USB cable acpupsd 3.10.17 (installed via sarge deb) Installation appears correct; it appears that the debian Don't pull the plug, you need to keep the ground connected to avoid damage. ------------------------------------- Oooh Shiny: PopularPages Unumquodque potest reparantur.

No, thanks SourceForge Browse Enterprise Blog Deals Help Create Log In or Join Solution Centers Go Parallel Resources Newsletters Cloud Storage Providers Business VoIP Providers Call Center Providers Thanks for helping apctest: bad option, I cannot do a killpower ==== This is weird, because apcupsd seems to work properly with all the other power-down tests etc. So there is some reason why these installations are not automatically starting acpupsd.
