NAME

       upstart-udev-bridge - Bridge between Upstart and udev

SYNOPSIS

       upstart-udev-bridge [OPTIONS]...

DESCRIPTION

       upstart-udev-bridge  receives  information  about  kernel  uevents that
       udev(8) has completed and creates init(8) events for them.

       It emits events which match the pattern "S-device-A" where 'S'  is  the
       udev subsystem and 'A' is 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/.

OPTIONS

       --daemon
              Detach and run in the background.

       --debug
              Enable debugging output.

       --help Show brief usage summary.

       --no-strip
              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 specifying  it  could  result  in  udev(7)
              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  without
              specifying this option but with the --debug option.

       --verbose
              Enable verbose output.

EXAMPLES

       Some examples of Upstart events generated by this bridge:

       net-device-added
              Event emitted when a network device is added.

       net-device-removed
              Event emitted when a network device is removed.

       graphics-card-added
              Event emitted when a graphics device is available to the system.

NOTES

       This is a temporary tool until init(8) itself gains  the  functionality
       to read them directly; you should not rely on its behaviour.
