DKMS stands for Dynamic Kernel Module Support. It allows system administrators to rebuild kernel modules which are not (yet) included in the kernel package provided by their chosen Linux distribution. It can also generate driver disks and Kernel Module packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Novell/SuSE Linux Enterprise Server.
DKMS is licensed under the GNU GPLv2. It is included in several Linux distributions, including Fedora and Mandriva. Builds for RPM-based distributions are available. Builds for Debian-based distributions, such as Ubuntu, are also available. DKMS is included in the Universe section of Ubuntu Gutsy and higher.
