DKMS Module Howto:
------------------
A number of modern distros (Ubuntu, Fedora and others) can use DKMS to help sensibly manage building
and maintaining additional third party kernel modules.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_Kernel_Module_Support
I've added some simple DKMS configs for flashcache to make building and managing it a little less painful.
The dirt quick way to get this working on Ubuntu 10.04 is as follows, and should be similar for any other
distro supporting DKMS:
1. Symlink the flashcache and/or flashcache-wt source directories into /usr/src so DKMS can find them:
cd /usr/src
sudo ln -s /path/to/flashcache/src flashcache-0.1
sudo ln -s /path/to/flashcache-wt/src flashcache-0.1
2. Add them to DKMS:
sudo dkms add -m flashcache -v 0.1
sudo dkms add -m flashcache-wt -v 0.1
3. Build and install the modules using DKMS:
sudo dkms build -m flashcache -v 0.1 && sudo dkms install -m flashcache -v 0.1
sudo dkms build -m flashcache-wt -v 0.1 && sudo dkms install -m flashcache-wt -v 0.1
Done!
Note that this won't install the utils you need to create the flashcache devices, you still
have to build and install those separately.
