SYNOPSISdh_installmodules [debhelper options] [-n] [--name=name]
DESCRIPTIONdh_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).
- Installed to etc/modprobe.d/package.conf in the package build directory.
- -n, --noscripts
- 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 usual debian/package.modprobe
NOTESNote 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.
