I wanted to use AMD's driver for my computer on their website since I didn't like Ubuntu's recommended driver.

My graphics card is a Radeon HD 5700 and I used this link and picked the latest beta, downloaded it, unzipped to my desktop changed the properties to run as a program, ran through the terminal and everything was going fine until this happened.

It says that I am missing tools for installation but when I look at installation requirements on the AMD website for this driver it seems like I have them all.

Please someone help me.

I think I found the problem.

I am missing some headers it seems. I don't know how it happened; seems I need to find the tool and add to my system. Thanks for the help.
