NAMEdh_installmodules - register modules with modutils
SYNOPSISdh_installmodules [debhelper options] [-n]
DESCRIPTIONdh_installmodules is a debhelper program that is responsible for registering kernel modules with modutils.
Files named debian/package.modules will be installed as etc/modutils/package in the package build directory.
Then postinst and postrm commands are automatically generated to register the modules when the package is installed. See dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of how this works. Note that this will be done for any package this program acts on which has either the above-mentioned file, or has .o files in /lib/modules.
NOTESNote that this command is not idempotent. ``dh_clean -k'' should be called between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may cause multiple instances of the same text to be added to maintainer scripts.
