NAME

       dh_installmodules - register modules with modutils

SYNOPSIS

       dh_installmodules [debhelperĀ options] [-n] [--name=name]

DESCRIPTION

       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 dh_installdeb(1).

FILES

       debian/package.modprobe
           Installed to etc/modprobe.d/package.conf in the package build directory.

       debian/package.modules
           These files were installed for use by modutils, but are now not used and
           dh_installmodules will warn if these files are present.

OPTIONS

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

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