    #!CrunchBang Linux AMD driver wont install.


    Hi, I'm new into the Crunchbang, i have been using Mint for the past half year, and decided to try something new, and i is Crunchbang.
    But I have a Issue by installing my AMD Graphic card driver.
    I got the file as a .run, but my problem when i Hit install i have to check a log.
    I checked the log and got this:

    Supported adapter detected.
    Check if system has the tools required for installation.
    fglrx installation requires that the system have kernel headers. /lib/modules/3.2.0-4-amd64/build/include/linux/version.h cannot be found on this system.
    One or more tools required for installation cannot be found on the system. Install the required tools before installing the fglrx driver.
    Optionally, run the installer with --force option to install without the tools.
    Forcing install will disable AMD hardware acceleration and may make your system unstable. Not recommended.


    Command for installing, i use
    sudo ./amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13-4-x86.x86_64.run
    I can chose to Install but another Distribution, and can only choose Redhat and SuSE
    Sorry if my text have alot of grammar fails and are complicated to read, and hope i put this in the right place.
    And really appreciate all the help i can get!

    Use the sgfxi script in Crunchbang to install video drivers. It is included in Crunchbang like it is in AntiX.
