$ LANG=C aptitude search atl2-modules-2.6.26-1-686
p   atl2-modules-2.6.26-1-686       - Driver for the Atheros L2 Fast Ethernet Ad
p   atl2-modules-2.6.26-1-686-bigme - Driver for the Atheros L2 Fast Ethernet Ad

$ LANG=C aptitude search eeepc-acpi-modules-2.6.26-1-686
p   eeepc-acpi-modules-2.6.26-1-686 - Driver for hotkeys found on the Asus Eee P
