DKMS Source for the batman-advanced kernel module

This package contains the source for the batman-adv-source kernel modules, packaged with approriate configuration for DKMS to build new modules dynamically. B.A.T.M.A.N. (better approach to mobile ad-hoc networking) is a new routing protocol for multi-hop ad-hoc mesh networks. B.A.T.M.A.N.-advanced is the implementation of this protocol on ISO/OSI Layer 2, allowing mesh networks to be used as a virtual switch. With this approach, LANs and WANs can be easily integrated, and more protocols (like DHCP, IPv6) are supported.


More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
