Problems compiling driver for VIA P4M800 Pro


I have been trying to install the drivers for my P4M800 Pro Integrated Graphics card with no luck. I have been trying to use the drivers from VIA Arena (UniChromeFamily Console Frame Buffer Driver). I tried using the packages for SuSE with no luck so I thought it would be easier and give me better preformance if I just compiled it specifically for my system but I keep getting this

Code:

I have installed the source code for my kernel in /usr/src. I am using SuSE 10.1 with Kernel 2.6.16.21-0.25. Any suggestions would be greatly appriciated.
