It looks like you are trying to build cipe without having a kernel
build directory. It also looks like you're not using the latest cipe
To build cipe you need to have a kernel source directory that has been
used to build a kernel. The process of building a kernel creates a
file include/linux/version.h, and in that file UTS_RELEASE is defined
as a string with the full kernel version (as returned by "uname -r").
If you didn't have a kernel source directory you'd get a diffferent
error, so presumably you have one. You'd also have gotten a differnt
error with a clean, unused source directory with no version.h file.
It looks like you have a source directory with a version.h file that
has no UTS_RELEASE definition in it. This should not happen without
someone manually creating an incomplete version.h file.
I think the reference to line 2540 implies you're using a pre-release
version of cipe 1.6. Version 1.6.0 has been out for some time, and
for it the UTS_RELEASE check is usually done at about line 2100.
If you're "completly new to linux", trying to build cipe is a tough
place to start.
