Additional Information:
I feel sure you have a package problem here because I was able to fix it by grabbing nut-0.45.3.tar.gz and making new binaries.
also they've changed the config files somewhat and I had to modifiy /etc/rc.d/init.d/ups

Could you please tell me, what you have to change config file
s and /etc/rc.d/init.d/ups.

i cannot verify it without having hardware.
