NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_installmodules - register modules with modutils

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_installmodules [debhelper options] [-n]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_installmodules is a debhelper program that is responsible for registering
 kernel modules with modutils.

       Files named debian/package.modules will be installed as etc/modutils/package
 in the package build directory.

       Then postinst and postrm commands are automatically generated to register
 the modules when the package is installed. See dh_installdeb(1) for
       an explanation of how this works. Note that this will be done for any
       package this program acts on which has either the above-mentioned file,
       or has .o files in /lib/modules.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       -n, --noscripts
	   Do not modify postinst/postrm scripts.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       Note that this command is not idempotent. "dh_clean -k" 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    [Toc]    [Back]


       This program is a part of debhelper.
