make-kpkg and maintainer's name


When I compile the kernel with the make-kpkg command, how can I set the name of the kernel's maintainer?

Assuming you build the recommended way using fakeroot as normal user put something like this in your ~/.bashrc file changing to your settings.

# Added for kernel building identification
    export KPKG_MAINTAINER="Stephen Cormier"
    export KPKG_EMAIL=****

As an alternative to the above suggestion, you can also set it in /etc/kernel-pkg.conf. Just modify the maintainer's name and email and then all kernels you compile afterwards will be marked with that name and email address.
