I've just installed Bodhi Linux 4.1 32 bit on my subnotebook and was trying to install the AMD drivers for the embeded Radeon.


During the install process, I got this error message :


"fglrx installation requires that the system has kernel headers.  /lib/modules/4.8.0-34-generic/build/include/linux/version.h cannot be found on this system.

Install kernel headers using the command apt-get install linux-headers-4.8.0-34-generic.


So I ran the command "apt-get install linux-headers-4.8.0-34-generic" and I got the following answer : "linux-headers-4.8.0-34-generic is already the newest version (4.8.0-34.36~16.04.1)"


I looked into the /lib/modules/4.8.0-34-generic/build/include/linux/ directory and found no version.h header file


Can you help ?


Thanks a lot ,




A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

Hi, welcome to the forums.


Bodhi is a minimal distro and does not have all packages you might need for installing a proprietary driver. You can try

sudo apt-get install build-essential

Reboot and try to install the driver again. Don't have amd gear in my machine, so can't test this myself.

Merci, j'ai trouvé la réponse ici : https://askubuntu.co...on-ubuntu-15-10

Le fichier version.h est situé ailleurs dans l'arborescence, il faut faire un lien symbolique pour permettre l'installation.

For the non French readers here. This is what was said according to google translate.

Thanks, I found the answer here: https: //askubuntu.co...on-ubuntu-15-10
The file version.h is located elsewhere in the tree, it is necessary to make a symbolic link to allow the installation.
