DKMS). It extracts the modules' modaliases from either the compile .ko files themselves (for packages which ship them in compiled form, using modinfo), or from a package file debian/packagename.modaliases. . This enables software which is looking for missing driver packages (such as Jockey or the operating system installer) to identify which package(s) will provide a driver for a piece of hardware, identified by its modalias.
