When I try to compile the drivers I get this:

zeph7r at zeph7r-laptop:~/v4l/v4l-dvb> make all
make -C /home/zeph7r/v4l/v4l-dvb/v4l all
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/zeph7r/v4l/v4l-dvb/v4l'
Updating/Creating .config
Preparing to compile for kernel version 2.6.25
File not found: /lib/modules/ at 
./scripts/make_kconfig.pl line 32, <IN> line 4.
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `.myconfig', needed by 
`config-compat.h'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/zeph7r/v4l/v4l-dvb/v4l'
make: *** [all] Error 2

any hints on what might be causing this? I went look at that dir and 
found a makedumpfile.config , perhaps I should edit config-compat.h and 
set it to go look for that file instead..
