Some time ago, I started to set up the “Network UPS Tools” (NUT) for my uninterruptible power supply (UPS) “Eaton 3S”. It’s a UPS which can be connected to a computer via USB cable.
I found a NUT-package in the “testing”-repository of “Alpine Linux”. Unfortunately, I was unable to create a working setup using this package. After some research, I found the reason for my problems: A missing dependency to the
hidapi-package. I wanted to submit a merge request to get around the problem permanently.
