GPU: Radeon HD 5450 Distro: Ubuntu 12.10

Attempting to go to the AMD website and filling out the relevant information gives me this, however these drivers are incompatible with kernel 3.7 and when attempting to install them I get this error:

ERROR (dkms apport): kernel package linux-headers-3.7.0-7-generic is not supported
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.7.0-7-generic (x86_64)

I'm more than willing to provide any info that I am missing. Thank you in advance.

So you have a 3.7 kernel, but on the page you link to it says that it supports kernels 2.6 and on, up to 3.5. Can you use a 3.5 kernel? That is what comes default with Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal. – kalaracey Mar 21 '13 at 16:14
