    depmod

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           depmod  [  -b  basedir  ]  [ -e ]  [ -F System.map ]  [ -n ]  [ -v ]  [
           version ]  [ -A ]
    
           depmod [ -e ]  [ -FSystem.map ]  [ -n ]  [ -v ]  [ version ]   [  file-
           name... ]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Linux  kernel modules can provide services (called "symbols") for other
           modules to use (using EXPORT_SYMBOL in the code). If  a  second  module
           uses  this symbol, that second module clearly depends on the first mod-
           ule. These dependencies can get quite complex.
    
           depmod creates a list of module dependencies  by  reading  each  module
           under  /lib/modules/version and determining what symbols it exports and
           what symbols it needs. By default, this list is written to  modules.dep
           in the same directory. If filenames are given on the command line, only
           those modules are examined (which is rarely useful unless  all  modules
           are listed).
    
           If  a  version is provided, then that kernel version's module directory
           is used rather than the current kernel version (as  returned  by  uname
           -r).
    
           depmod  will  also generate various map files in this directory for use
           by the hotplug infrastructure.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -a --all
                  Probe all modules. This option is enabled by default if no  file
                  names are given in the command-line.
    
           -A --quick
                  This  option scans to see if any modules are newer than the mod-
                  ules.dep file before any work is done: if not, it silently exits
                  rather than regenerating the files.
    
           -b basedir --basedir basedir
                  If  your  modules  are  not  currently in the (normal) directory
                  /lib/modules/version, but in a staging area, you can  specify  a
                  basedir  which  is prepended to the directory name. This basedir
                  is stripped from the resulting modules.dep file, so it is  ready
                  to be moved into the normal location.
    
           -C --config file or directory
                  This   option   overrides  the  default  configuration  file  at
                  /etc/depmod.conf (or the /etc/depmod.d/ directory if that is not
                  found).
    
           -e --errsyms
                  When combined with the -F option, this reports any symbols which
                  a module needs which are not supplied by other  modules  or  the
                  directory.
    
           -v --verbose
                  In verbose mode, depmod will print (to stdout) all  the  symbols
                  each module depends on and the module's file name which provides
                  that symbol.
    
           -V --version
                  Show version of program and exit. See below for caveats when run
                  on older kernels.
