Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am running Slackware Linux 10.2 with kernel bareacpi.i 2.4.31. My UPS is
line interactive UPS
This is all the info I could extract from my UPS's documentation. I downloaded and installed the NUT Slcakware package nut-1.4.1-i486-1JKv.
The hostname of my system is "marto", the domain name is "mydomain". Apart from the "root", I have one user "marto".
These are my configuration files:
driver = genericups
port = /dev/ttyS0
ACL all 0.0.0.0/0
ACL localhost 127.0.0.1/32
ACCESS grant monitor localhost
ACCESS deny all all
MONITOR InformGuard@localhost 1 marto pass master
#the other settings in upsmon.conf are the default ones
The problem is that when I run "upsd", the following message appears:
Network UPS Tools upsd 1.4.1
/var/state/ups is world readable
Can't connect to UPS [InformGuard] (genericups-ttyS0): No such file or directory
/etc/upsd.conf is world readable
/etc/upsd.users is world readable
Synchronizing........ giving up
What do you think the problem is? Any solution? Thank you very much in advance.
