deb-postrm - package post-removal maintainer script

The script can be called in the following ways:
After the package was removed.
After the package was purged.
old-postrm upgrade new-version
After the package was upgraded.
new-postrm failed-upgrade old-version new-version
If the above upgrade call fails.
postrm disappear overwriter-package overwriter-version
After all of the packages files have been replaced.
If preinst fails during install.
new-postrm abort-install old-version new-version
If preinst fails during upgrade of removed package.
new-postrm abort-upgrade old-version new-version

DH_INSTALLMODULES(1) Debhelper DH_INSTALLMODULES(1)NAME
dh_installmodules - register kernel modules
dh_installmodules [debhelperoptions] [-n] [--name=name]
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
Installed to etc/modprobe.d/package.conf in the package build directory.
OPTIONS -n, --no-scripts
Do not modify preinst/postinst/postrm scripts.
When this parameter is used, dh_installmodules looks for and installs files named debian/package.name.modprobe instead of the usual
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.

This program is a part of debhelper.
