I have the EXACT same problem as well and I am stuck! But I wasn't able
to do a full install so I'm lost as to what to do now. I was reading up
on creating a makefile but I don't know if I need to though. Any
suggestions? Also, I am in the /usr/src/linux directory.
I'm getting completely frustrated at this point and I hate giving up.
