First of all - I'm "windows guy" and need Linux mostly for testing purposes, to test portability of my OpenCL application.
So I installed Ubuntu 12.10 x64 desktop on secondary USB HDD, booted into, downloaded Catalyst 13.1 zip archive, extracted *.run file from it and launched it.
Installer complained with next error logged into /usr/share/ati/
Supported adapter detected.
Check if system has the tools required for installation.
fglrx installation requires that the system have kernel headers. /lib/modules/3.5.0-17-generic/build/include/linux/version.h cannot be found on this system.
One or more tools required for installation cannot be found on the system. Install the required tools before installing the fglrx driver.
Optionally, run the installer with --force option to install without the tools.
Forcing install will disable AMD hardware acceleration and may make your system unstable. Not recommended.
Please, give me some simple instructions what and from where I need to download to make it work. Maybe it's trivial for experienced Linux user, but I have no clue what package contains mentioned header file... (and why AMD did not include it in its own driver install package btw).
