DH_INSTALLMODULES(1) Debhelper DH_INSTALLMODULES(1)
dh_installmodules - register modules with modutils
dh_installmodules [debhelper options] [-n] [--name=name]
dh_installmodules is a debhelper program that is responsible for regis
tering kernel modules.
Files named debian/package.modules will be installed as etc/modu
tils/package in the package build directory. This is for use by modu
tils. Files named debian/package.modprobe will be installed in etc/mod
probe.d/package in the package build directory, to be used by mod
ule-init-toolss version of modprobe.
Kernel modules are searched for in the package build directory and if
found, postinst and postrm commands are automatically generated to run
depmod and register the modules when the package is installed. See
dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of how this works.
Do not modify postinst/postrm scripts.
When this parameter is used, dh_installmodules looks for and
installs files named debian/package.name.modules and debian/pack
age.name.modprobe instead of the usual debian/package.modules and
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.
This program is a part of debhelper.
