Mandrakelinux Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: nut
Advisory ID: MDKA-2005:007
Date: January 27th, 2005

Affected versions: 10.0, 10.1, Corporate Server 3.0
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A bug in the upsd initscript used by nut exists where it starts the upsd/powerdown script earlier in the halt/shutdown process to ensure it still has access to USB. However, this was done too earlier, while the root partition was still mounted in read/write mode. Due to this delay, it was possible that the UPS would run out of power before a clean halt. The updated packages are fixed to remove the delay that could cause the problem.

It is important to note that users make sure their UPS has at least a 15 second delay before shutting down; most UPS units have this feature by default, but not all. Users can also manage the shutdown delay in the nut configuration file if their nut-driver supports it.
