@sulaweyo Fixed with -4, turns out the non-www URL works fine.

The source host currently has a not really valid cert active:
curl: (51) SSL: no alternative certificate subject name matches target host name ''

As a workaround i used this additional option in the PKGBUILD:
DLAGENTS=("https::/usr/bin/curl -k -L -o %o %u")"

In order to compile collectd's nut plugin (not shipped with current collectd package from the community repo) --with-dev configure option is needed.

This will install header and pkg-config files.

@hexadecagram I suggest suggesting this in the upstream bugtracker:

I'd rather avoid applying patches which aren't coming from upstream.

If I use udev to set different permission on the device node for my USB, nut-driver.service doesn't start up on boot. If I then login and restart nut-driver.service, it works.

The systemd functionality described in this blog supposedly worked at one time (I never tried it myself):

After much trial and error, I set and for both nut-driver.service and nut-server.service (the latter of which should have those configurations regardless, because upsd will fail to start if the network is not online). Boom, it works. I tried quite a few unit files before that, all the way up the chain to upower.service. Nothing else worked.

I think a more appropriate fix would be to add something like the following in nut-driver.service. This will work for now but I think the ideal solution would to be to remove the nut-driver.service dependency in nut-server.service and work it into udev so that drivers are reloaded when devices are hotplugged.

Much thanks The-Compiler :)

@hexadecagram Thanks for bringing this up again, must've gotten lost in all the mails I get last time ;) -2 now installs them there, I agree that sounds like the right location.

@precurse @augiedoggie @lulingar @travesh Okay, I give up, I added armv6h and armv7h, even though they aren't official architectures...

This package still conflicts with the rhino package, even though this was first reported in 2012!

To get the ball rolling, all it would take is a simple one-line edit of PKGBUILD so that the build() step calls ./configure with --with-drvpath=/usr/lib/network-ups-tools (my recommendation for where the binaries should go, in accordance with the hier manpage).
