NAME

udevd - event managing daemon

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

udevd [--daemon]
udevcontrol command

DESCRIPTION

udevd listens to kernel uevents and passes the incoming events to udev. It ensures the right event order and takes care, that events for child devices are delayed until the parent has finished the device handling.

OPTIONS

--daemon
  Detach and run in the background.
log_priority=value
  udevcontrol can dynamically set the log level of udevd. Valid values are the numerical syslog priorities or their textual representations: err, info and debug.
stop_exec_queue
  udevcontrol stops the execution of events from udevd.
start_exec_queue
  udevcontrol starts the execution of events from udevd.

ENVIRONMENT

UDEV_LOG
  Overrides the syslog priority specified in the config file.
