udev does not run program on remove


I am playing around with udev and automounting.
I put the following rule in /etc/udev/rules:
Code:
BUS=="scsi",DRIVER=="sd",SYSFS{model}=="USB Disk        ",SYSFS{vendor}=="Generic ",SYMLINK+="_usbdisk%n",RUN+="/etc/udev/scripts/automount"
which creates the symlink as expected. The "automount" script is as follows:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
printenv >> /tmp/udev.log
echo >> /tmp/udev.log
which executes as expected for adds, but never for removes, although udevmonitor shows that removes are intercepted:
Quote:
UDEV [1161443405.906373] add@/block/sdb/sdb1
and later
Quote:
UDEV [1161443416.496382] remove@/block/sdb/sdb1
.
So what do I have to do in order to have my script run at removal as well?

I think you need an ACTION="remove" that matches your other rule. I've not done this but I think thats how it's done.

ACTION="remove", SYSFS{model}=="USB Disk ", SYSFS{vendor}=="Generic ", RUN+="/etc/udev/scripts/automount"

I've changed the rules to this:
Quote:
ACTION=="add",BUS=="scsi",DRIVER=="sd",SYSFS{model}=="USB Disk ",SYSFS{vendor}=="Generic ",SYMLINK+="_usbdisk%n",RUN+="/etc/udev/scripts/automount add"
ACTION=="remove",BUS=="scsi",DRIVER=="sd",SYSFS{model}=="USB Disk ",SYSFS{vendor}=="Generic ",RUN+="/etc/udev/scripts/automount remove"
and the script to
Quote:
#!/bin/bash
echo "parameter = $1" >> /tmp/udev.log
printenv >> /tmp/udev.log
echo >> /tmp/udev.log
The events get caught properly:
Quote:
root@slackw:~$ udevmonitor
udevmonitor prints the received event from the kernel [UEVENT]
and the event which udev sends out after rule processing [UDEV]
