DH_INSTALLMODULES(1)               Debhelper              DH_INSTALLMODULES(1)



NAME
       dh_installmodules - register modules with modutils

SYNOPSIS
       dh_installmodules [debhelper options] [-n] [--name=name]

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

       Files named debian/package.modprobe will be installed in
       etc/modprobe.d/package in the package build directory, to be used by
       module-init-tools's 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.  These
       commands are inserted into the maintainer scripts by dh_installdeb.
       See dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of how this works.

       Previous versions of dh_installmodules also supported files named
       debian/package.modules, which were installed into etc/modutils/package
       in the package build directory. This was for use by modutils, which is
       no longer in Debian. dh_installmodules will warn about such files now.

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

       --name=name
           When this parameter is used, dh_installmodules looks for and
           installs files named debian/package.name.modules and
           debian/package.name.modprobe instead of the usual
           debian/package.modules and 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.
