Recently I installed an apcusbd on a FreeBSD 8.0 amd64 box via ports system. It installed perfectly but it won't run.
Here what is says in the log:
FATAL ERROR in generic-usb.c at line 636 Cannot find UPS
It appeared that HID driver picked the
/dev/ugen4.2 which could cause the apcusb being
unable to find the device. After I had discovered this, I rebuilt the kernel and removed the hid driver. Now it just shows "
ugen4.2: <Tripp Lite> at usbus4" and no
uhid0 device appears.
Nevertheless the problem persisted. I tried to leave the
DEVICE config setting blank --- won't help. Then I specified the particular device in the config, but it did not help either.
Below you is the output of several commands that can provide some useful information on my case.
