Well the problem is what the message produces, just not easily
interpretted. Just do a make config and enable that option so the
.config file in /usr/src/linux includes loadable modules support then do a
make in the modules dir. This is what it wants to see. (ie. im not asking
you to install a kernel terry, and i believe you when you say your kernel
supports loadable modules, and i dont agree this is a sane check by bttv)
hint: if you read the makefile it references
KERNEL_LOCATION=/usr/src/linux which is more than enough to work out where
