I want to install my Avermedia USB 2 card in Ububtu Breezy. I am 
following Patrick Boettecher's guide from 

I have downloaded the source via CVS, installed the kernel headers and 
kernel source via apt-get. I have changed to the build-2.6 directory and 
run make. I get the following error:

Makefile:13: /lib/modules/2.6.12-8-386/source/.config: No such file or 
directorymake: *** No rule to make target 
`/lib/modules/2.6.12-8-386/source/.config'.  Stop.

I have no source directory under /lib/modules/2.6.12-8-386/

My linux source is installed in /usr/src/ linux-source-2.6.12

Clearly I need to tell the Makefile where to find the files it needs. 
How do I go about this?

Thanks in advance.
