I don't know how to do that properly. See for example: http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/d-i/trunk/packages/partman/partman-crypto/finish-install.d/05crypto?op=file&rev=0&sc=0 Note that that assumes l-m-e also generates appropriate meta-packages (without kernel minor and ABI version) which depend on the actual package, but I'd expect that to be covered automatically. Example: Package: loop-aes-modules-2.6-686 Depends: linux-latest-modules-2.6.25-2-686, loop-aes-modules-2.6.25-2-686 My conclusion for now is that there seems to be no harm in waiting until the modules are actually available in the archive. The scripts are fairly trivial and can be added on short notice at that time. With the added advantage that they then can be properly tested. We can then also add them in kernel-wedge so that the kernel module udebs can be generated. Cheers, FJP
