Hi Alex,

Weird.. Can you put the `upsclient.h' file (usually in /usr/include, but
`libupsclient-config --cflags' will tell you where exactly it's found)
online somewhere or send it via email or something?

I'll fix this with the next patch-release. For the time being you can

I don't use the serial plugin myself, so I didn't get around to add the
graphs to the collection.cgi. If you send a patch I'll happly apply it.
