If by "full source" you mean "I downloaded kernel tarball, and extract
it" then it won't work. Period.

You need either:
- a "minimal" version of build directory, usually packed as
linux-headers or kernel-devel (or similar) by your distro, or
- recompile the kernel, and use both the new kernel and the build
directory to build out-of-tree modules.

What distro is that? Better ask your distro provider. It IS possible
(though unlikely) that they're deliberately preventing users from
compiling their own module (e.g. due to support issue)
