dh_installmodules - register modules with modutils
dh_installmodules [debhelperĀ options] [-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
These files were installed for use by modutils, but are now not
used and dh_installmodules will warn if these files are present.
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
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.
