    How can I install AMD graphics drivers on F18?

    I'm struggling to get them installed. I've downloaded the .run file from their site, and when I execute it, the AMD Catalyst window opens. If I select "Install driver 9.002 on 6.9 or later" I get an error about kernel headers. If I select "Generate Distribution Specific Driver Package" I get the following error:
    Package build failed!
    Package build utility output:
    ./packages/RedHat/ line 219: rpmbuild: command not found
    [Error] Generate Package - error generating package : RedHat/RHEL6

    Any ideas?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    You need to install the kernel headers package (kernel-headers) on your system first: yum install kernel-headers
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
