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.
