I recently installed openSUSE and I'm trying to get my radeon HD 7xxx running ok with drivers but I haven't been unable to do that. This is my output after trying to install the driver I downloaded from AMD:

Supported adapter detected. Detected a previous installation, /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh Installation with force option. Check if system has the tools required for installation. fglrx installation requires that the system have kernel headers for 3.7 release. /lib/modules/3.7.10-1.1-desktop/build/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h cannot be found on this system. fglrx installation is being forced. Installation will proceed without the required tools on the system.

Uninstalling any previously installed drivers. One or more files have been altered since installation. Uninstall will not be completed. See /etc/ati/fglrx-uninstall.log for details. [Message] Kernel Module : Trying to install a precompiled kernel module. [Message] Kernel Module : Precompiled kernel module version mismatched. [Message] Kernel Module : Found kernel module build environment, generating ker$ AMD kernel module generator version 2.1 kernel includes at /lib/modules/3.7.10-1.1-desktop/build/include not found or i$ [Error] Kernel Module : Failed to compile kernel module - please consult readme. [Reboot] Kernel Module : mkinitrd

I hope some of you can help me. Thanks
