Automatic Linux device driver upgrades

the INQUIRER Monday 24 September 2007:

DELL has been working with Linux vendors on something called Dynamic Kernel Module Support (DKMS) for about five years, according to Linux-Watch.

DKMS is a framework for Linux kernel dependent device driver modules that will enable automatic driver upgrades without requiring users to compile drivers by hand or wait for new kernel releases.
