| sorry, forgot: tripplite does provide linux software that tries to be equivalent to what they supply for windows, but it has a few bugs (like not being able to retrieve archived ups data and consuming 100% cpu on a headless red hat 6.2 system when only installing the client part of it). it also only comes packaged as an rpm. there’s a tgz, but that’s not a “package” in the “package management” sense.
i used it under red hat 6.2, but switched to nut (because package management is so much easier under debian) when i switched the machine to debian.
and DANG IT! why is my posting showing up under “anonymous” and not my user name? i’m logged in and i didn’t select “post anonymously”.
oh well. i guess my username of “undefined” is appropriate for the way dp treats me. 😉
