From what I've read, DKMS will compile the driver after a new

At boot time DKMS will run and check if the source modules it has been told to build
and install have been added to the running kernel and
if not it will undertake those actions.
The situation that prompted this mail was where to test the auto
build functionality in DKMS I forced the boot time building.
I've checked the /etc/kernel/postinst.d/dkms script and I'm not sure its
properly (I will need to check what the autoinstaller is doing). It seems to me that the
autoinstaller is being run against the kernel identified by $kern_inst, which without
knowing what Fedora is doing, I would have assumed is set to the name of the running
kernel, which if I am correct it seems that DKMS is building the specified module
against the newly installed kernel headers and installing into the new kernel (this is
if the make parameter that identifies the kernel version to build against is specified,
which in my case is specified in dkms.conf).
You may want to try adding....
