Use a third-party APC UPS management tool for more control
Authored by: Loh-Q on Mar 19, '10 04:32:34AM

Not working in 10.6.2 on an Intel 2.66Ghz 8-core.
I ran "sudo /Library/StartupItems/apcupsd/apcupsd stop"
I still get this:

2010-03-19 04:28:11 apctest 3.14.8 (16 January 2010) darwin
Checking configuration ...
Attached to driver: usb
sharenet.type = DISABLE
cable.type = USB_CABLE

You are using a USB cable type, so I'm entering USB test mode
mode.type = USB_UPS
Setting up the port ...
apctest FATAL ERROR in generic-usb.c at line 636
Cannot find UPS device --
For a link to detailed USB trouble shooting information,

apctest error termination completed

Any ideas?

- Was there any output from running:

sudo /Library/StartupItems/apcupsd/apcupsd stop

If successful, it should be:

Shutting down UPS monitoring

- Try running this:

ps acx | grep apcupsd

No output if apcupsd isn't running. Otherwise, it'll look similar to:

105 ?? Ss 1:10.01 apcupsd

What to suggest next depends on the results.

Are you running your intel chip with OSX's 64-bit kernel? I get your error msg with 64bit though it works fine for me with 32-bit. Hmph.

My system log shows this during the boot:

Mar 19 12:15:04 RG-iMac com.apple.SystemStarter[47]: Starting UPS monitoring
Mar 19 12:15:04 RG-iMac apcupsd[96]: Valid lock file for pid=86, but not ours pid=96
Mar 19 12:15:05 RG-iMac configd[15]: network configuration changed.

Mar 19 12:15:05 RG-iMac apcupsd[97]: Valid lock file for pid=86, but not ours pid=97
Mar 19 12:15:05 RG-iMac apcupsd[97]: apcupsd error shutdown completed

I've not time to follow up on this just now.

Yep, running in 64-bit...
Ah well :-)
