          the make file is looking for the .config from your installed 
kernel. On some distributions like Gentoo it is where it is expected 
because Gentoo users compile another kernel at the drop of a hat. Other 
distros like ubuntu ship the config file but it is not in the right 
place. For ubuntu you would look in the /boot directory. It will be 
called something like config-<kernel revision>. Copy it to the name 
.config in the specified directory:


You will need to find out what your distro does to ship the config file, 
get a copy and put it there.
