NAME         top

       dh_installmodules - register kernel modules

SYNOPSIS         top

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

DESCRIPTION         top

       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         top

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

OPTIONS         top

       -n, --no-scripts
           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

NOTES         top

       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.
