PowerChute on SuSe8.1


i'm the newest newbie using powerchute, so pls help:

I installed PowerChute Business Edition Basic on my suse 8.1 pc ---> ok, the deamon is also running.. but now my problem.... how can i configure the software? i tried to execute the .jar files:
linux:/opt/APC/PowerChuteBusinessEdition/Agent # java EventTracker.jar
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: EventTracker/jar


i didn't find any other executeable files which could make sence....
i searched for documentation, but i didn't find any good one.... does anyone know how to configure it or has some good examples or do i make something wrong? Can't believe that that is so difficult...

thx for help
greetings Pre▀y

i edit the powerchute.ini file. then restart the daemon.

i have powerchute running on aix and solaris.

jar files are for java and are not executeables.

just for info and the forum's search function:

i have just resolved the problem myself:

you have to install the apcubsd which cames with the suse dvd. then you get a /etc/apcubsd/apcubsd.conf file where you can fill in the preferences. with the apcubsd -c command you can update the ups. now you have to link the /etc/init.d/apcubsd to the prefered runlevel and start it: it runs ;-)
