       dh_dkms - correctly handle DKMS usage by a kernel module package

       dh_dkms [debhelper options] [-l] [-V[version]] [-- file]

       dh_dkms is a debhelper program that is responsible for correctly
       setting postinst, postrm and dependencies in kernel module packages
       using DKMS.

       If a file named debian/package.dkms exists, then different actions are
       performed, depending on its contents.

	   It can be a proper configuration file, and in this case it would be
	   installed in the proper directory as dkms.conf.

	   It can also point to another file (this should be used when the
	   configuration is provided by upstream), and in this case that file
	   will be installed as dkms.conf in the proper directory.

	   This file can only miss if a filename is provided when calling

       -l, --legacy
	   Add code to also support DKMS versions <

       -V, -V version
	   If "PACKAGE_VERSION" in dkms.conf is set to "#MODULE_VERSION#", set
	   it to the given version or, if none is given, default to the
	   upstream version of the current package. Otherwise, leave the value
	   specified in dkms.conf.

       -- file
	   Don't look for debian/package.dkms or debian/dkms, but install file
	   as dkms.conf.

       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.

       IMPORTANT: binary packages using dh_dkms must have a name that ends in


       This program is part of the Debian DKMS package.
