NAME

dh_installkpatches - install kernel patch into package build directories

SYNOPSIS

dh_installkpatches [ debhelper options ]
 

DESCRIPTION

dh_installkpatches is a debhelper script that reads debian/package.kpatches or debian/package.kpatches.something files describing one or several revisions of a single kernel patch, and installs them into the package build directory with customized apply and unpatch scripts.
It also sets the kpatch:Depends substitution variable, that you should use in your control file to ensure that generated material in your package get all their dependencies. The use of kpatch:Depends requires a build-dependency on version 0.99.3 or later of the dh-kpatches package. Using this variable is now required, since 0.99.16 (mostly because too many people forgot to set it).

OPTIONS

This program does not take any particular option in addition to the standard debhelper(1) ones.
