upstart-udev-bridge - Bridge between Upstart and udev
receives information about kernel uevents that
has completed and creates
events for them.
It emits events which match the pattern "S-device-A" where
'S' is the udev subsystem and 'A' is one of
added, changed or removed,
which correspond to the past tense of the udev 'action'.
See udev(7) and for further details.
Assuming /sys is mounted, possible values for subsystem for
your system are viewable via /sys/class/.
Detach and run in the background.
Enable debugging output.
Show brief usage summary.
Do not modify udev message contents. By default, all udev data will have
non-printable bytes removed. This option reverts the behaviour to not
modifying the data in any way. This option is not recommended since
events not being emitted as Upstart events should any of your
hardware expose non-printable characters to the kernel. You can establish
whether this is happening by running
specifying this option
but with the
Enable verbose output.
Some examples of Upstart events generated by this bridge:
Event emitted when a network device is added.
Event emitted when a network device is removed.
Event emitted when a graphics device is available to the system.
