... or it may not. I've seen dkms fail to build openafs.ko too many times. 
After so many users complaining that they didn't have a home directory 
after they turned their machine on and couldn't log in, we gave in and 
switched to using the kmod-openafs package.

Others may have other experiences with dkms, but it's certainly an option 
if it works for you.
