section kernel
description

Source for the batmand-gateway kernel module

This package provides the source code for the batmand-gateway-source kernel modules. It is used to reduce the load of a batmand gateway by moving all tunnel related operations from userspace to kernelland and thus minimize memory operations between them. batmand doesn't require the gateway to be loaded to provide gateway functionality. Kernel source or headers are required to compile these modules. This package is part of batmand. See batmand package for more information.

More information about apt-get install

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 install is followed by one or more packages desired for installation or upgrading. Each package is a package name, not a fully qualified filename. All packages required by the package(s) specified for installation will also be retrieved and installed. The /etc/apt/sources.list file is used to locate the desired packages. If a hyphen is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be removed if it is installed. Similarly a plus sign can be used to designate a package to install. These latter features may be used to override decisions made by apt-get's conflict resolution system.
