Can't build any modules for custom kernel
I downloaded kernel 184.108.40.206, compiled and installed it.
When running the kernel however, I can't seem to be able to compile any modules for the kernel. The kernel source is still under /usr/src/linux (which is a symlink to /usr/src/linux-220.127.116.11).
I've tried compiling various things: the latest Madwifi, Truecrypt, the VMware kernel modules. They all recognise that the source for the current kernel is kept in /usr/src/linux (which it is), but they all fail with nondescript errors (make [Error 2]).
I have run make modules_prepare from inside /usr/src/linux, but to no avail.
What could I be missing? When I build the kernel, I copied over my current config and didn't change anything, so is there a kernel config option I am missing or something?
Thanks in advance.

You copied over your current kernel config to the newly downloaded one? I don't think that would work. When I compile a new kernel I use the vanilla source from kernel.org and choose all the options I want.
