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
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.
--help 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 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 specify-
ing this option but with the --debug option.
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.
This is a temporary tool until init(8) itself gains the functionality
to read them directly; you should not rely on its behaviour.
