checking for kernel version... The file /lib/modules/2.6.9/source/include/linux/version.h does not exist.
seeing this part of the logs, it seems to me some recquired files are not found, you might want to check if you've placed them somewhere else, or i(in case you don't have them) where you can get them.

do you have the kernel sources installed ?
if not, you'll have to get a package with the sources for the kernel you use.
