I've just replaced a dead Tripplite UPS with a Conext unit that includes serial-port notification capability. The new one uses APC's PowerChute software so obviously it must match APC's standard. Consequently I went to the APC web site and downloaded their SSD Simple Shutdown Driver for Linux (a source tarball).
It configured and compiled okay, but when I start it up, I get this error message:
ssd: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.2.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
It's correct; I do not have a copy of that older version. I do have libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so in /usr/lib, though. Here are my questions:
Would it be safe to create a symbolic link to the newer version, with the name of the older one, to satisfy the ssd program?
If that's not a good tack, does anyone know where I can get a copy of the 2.8 version to install?
If neither of these is a solution, does anyone know of a replacement daemon I can use? Will powerd work with the APC cable?
