no rule to make target means there is no .config for your make file in your source. or you do not have a configured kernel.
the program is looking for your .config file that will till it how to use the make file .
you must configure your kernel first. if you are already running that kernel then cd /usr/src/linux-uname and then do a make mrproper then
copy your .config file from your
/boot/ folder
to your /usr/src/linix-uname and then do a make oldconfig answer any questions asked then when done the .config is
now ready you can use the kernel to build new modules.
