Trying Kosmic AMD64 alpha 2 via
http:..cdimage.ubuntu.com/release/karmic/alpha-2  (Attempting to get xen
working - seems Xen is 'not native' and I can not find a 'use this
repository to get a native version' - so selected the native KVM

Setting up kvm-source (1:84+dfsg-0ubuntu14) ...
Removing all [kvm-84] DKMS Modules

ERROR: Missing kernel headers.

You appear to have at least some kernel headers
installed, but you do not have the necessary   
headers to build kvm-source against this kernel.

You might try installing the meta package:
 $ sudo apt-get install linux-headers-server
or specifically
 $ sudo apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.30-8-server
to obtain the necessary build dependencies.
