an UPS package

3rd Party Package Requesting

Postby manuelazo » Fri Jan 11, 2002 5:48 pm

I was wondering, freesco could be great if it has an UPS package (with the serial connection), because, every time the power fails, and later, I turn on the router back, and there is allways a package corrupted, and that's anoying!! I have an UPS installed on my freesco, but no connected to the serial point (lack of the client program, duh!), and some time the power doesn't come back so soon, that my batteries run out!!<p>Thanks!!<p>CYA!!

Does it exist for slackware?  If it does, it could probably be made to work on freesco also.

Perhaps a port of powerstatd into a Freesco package is what's needed:

Not only to shutdown the router, but to notify other systems that may be sharing the same UPS. Be kinda nice if it could send an E-mail too... Say to an E-mail/SMS capable mobile phone.

Sinve then. i have discovered "powerd" in slackware.  Maybe it's also in zipslack.  It seem to run on freesco but i dont have a ups to test with.

Funny that. I have a brand new UPS, but no Slackware system to build on... :)

Also stumbled across this. Might be useful:
