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
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.
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/package.name.modprobe instead of the usual
debian/package.modules and debian/package.modprobe
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.
