    Command:

    depmod.d

    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The  order  in which modules are processed by the depmod command can be
           altered on a global or per-module basis. This is  typically  useful  in
           cases  where  built-in  kernel modules are complemented by custom built
           versions of the same and the user wishes to affect the priority of pro-
           cessing in order to override the module version supplied by the kernel.
    
           The format of depmod.conf and files under depmod.d is simple: one  com-
           mand  per  line,  with  blank lines and lines starting with '#' ignored
           (useful for adding comments). A '\' at the end of a line causes  it  to
           continue on the next line, which makes the file a bit neater.
    
    
    

    COMMANDS

           search subdirectory...
                  This  allows  you to specify the order in which /lib/modules (or
                  other configured module location) subdirectories  will  be  pro-
                  cessed  by  depmod.  Directories  are  listed in order, with the
                  highest priority given to the first  listed  directory  and  the
                  lowest  priority given to the last directory listed. The special
                  keyword built-in  refers  to  the  standard  module  directories
                  installed by the kernel.
    
                  By  default,  depmod  will give a higher priority to a directory
                  with  the  name  updates  using  this  built-in  search  string:
                  "updates  built-in"  but  more complex arrangements are possible
                  and are used in several popular distributions.
    
           override modulename kernelversion modulesubdirectory
                  This command allows you to override which version of a  specific
                  module  will  be used when more than one module sharing the same
                  name is processed by the depmod command. It is possible to spec-
                  ify  one kernel or all kernels using the * wildcard.  modulesub-
                  directory is the name of the subdirectory under /lib/modules (or
                  other module location) where the target module is installed.
    
                  For  example,  it  is  possible  to  override the priority of an
                  updated test module called kmp by specifying the following  com-
                  mand:  "override kmp * extra".  This will ensure that any match-
                  ing module name installed under the  extra  subdirectory  within
                  /lib/modules  (or other module location) will take priority over
                  any likenamed module already provided by the kernel.
