I was trying to install driver for my graphics card, I'm using Ubuntu 14.10 and when I install driver from support.amd.com log file says that i don't have kernel headers (version.h file) in /lib/modules/3.16.0-25-generic/build/include/linux/version.h -but I have kernel headers installed! How to make it work? Thanks for help.

Install Linux Generic Headers:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic

Install the Drivers:

sudo apt-get install fglrx fglrx-amdcccle


sudo apt-get install fglrx-updates fglrx-amdcccle-updates

Generate a fresh xorg.conf BEFORE REBOOTING!

sudo aticonfig --initial


sudo amdconfig --initial

OR (for AMD dual GFX)

sudo aticonfig --adapter=all --initial


sudo amdconfig --adapter=all --initial


To confirm the drivers are working:


Output must be similar to:

display: :0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 3000M Series
OpenGL version string: 4.2.11733 Compatibility Profile Context
  • fglrxinfo display: :0 screen: 0 OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Mobile Intel® GM45 Express Chipset OpenGL version string: 1.4 (2.1 Mesa 10.3.0)
