Does anyone know how to resolve these init errors that happen from the Cyberpower powerpanel for linux package?

I tried using nut instead, but it has issues, namely Debian bug 354429 that effectively disables syslog, and thus nut is not an option.

1 Answer 1

I put the following into /etc/init.d/pwrstatd:

#!/bin/sh

### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides:          pwrstatd
# Required-Start:    udev
# Required-Stop:
# Should-Start:
# Default-Start:     2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop:
# Short-Description: PowerPanel to monitor CyberPower UPS
### END INIT INFO

It seemed to make sense to make it rely on udev.

To verify that this works, if you have insserv and graphviz installed (this question is for Debian after all), run:

/usr/share/insserv/check-initd-order -g > boot.dot
dotty boot.dot
