You can use the compat-glibc* libraries included in 7.x which give you the
6.x libraries, then the older PowerChute software works fine (at least I've
done this on my PE2400 at home and it worked fine).  One annoying thing
though, the PowerChute software requires open-to-the-world network ports (it
doesn't let you specify IP addresses to listen on, nor can you use ipchains
to block access or it won't work).  For this reason I wouldn't run the
software on my external firewall...
