NAME
dh_installmodules - register modules with modutils SYNOPSIS
dh_installmodules [debhelperoptions] [-n] [--name=name] DESCRIPTION
dh_installmodules is a debhelper program that is responsible for registering kernel modules. Kernel modules are searched for in the package build directory and if found, preinst, postinst and postrm commands are automatically generated to run depmod and register the modules when the package is installed. These commands are inserted into the maintainer scripts by dh_installdeb(1). FILES
debian/package.modprobe Installed to etc/modprobe.d/package.conf in the package build directory. debian/package.modules These files were installed for use by modutils, but are now not used and dh_installmodules will warn if these files are present. OPTIONS
-n, --noscripts Do not modify preinst/postinst/postrm scripts. --name=name When this parameter is used, dh_installmodules looks for and installs files named debian/package.name.modprobe instead of the usual debian/package.modprobe NOTES
Note that this command is not idempotent. dh_prep(1) should be called between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may cause multiple instances of the same text to be added to maintainer scripts. SEE ALSO
debhelper(7) This program is a part of debhelper. AUTHOR
