nut upsd usbhid-ups segfault error 4 in libc-2.23.so APC Back-UPS RS 500 ubuntu 16.04


Following error when I tried to start upsd

kernel: [588428.295337] usbhid-ups[15008]: segfault at 0 ip 00007f7fcad3f7d4 sp 00007ffd824c5178 error 4 in libc-2.23.so[7f7fcabf0000+1bf000]

The driver seems to start fine with (with root privileges):

upsdrvctl -u root start

I’ve not further investigated. Just edit the Initscript:

vim /etc/init.d/nut-server

UPSD_OPTIONS="-u root"

line 79

! $upsdrvctl -u root start >/dev/null 2>&1 && \

Have fun!
