I can't install catalyst pro on Opensuse Leap 42.1

I'm trying to compile the driver

fglrx-15.201.2401 for my firepro V3900 and Leap 42.1 (opensuse)


I installed kernel sources and everything (kernel headers, dkms, make etc).


But I get an error message:

fglrx installation requires that the system have kernel headers. /lib/modules/4.1.12-1-default/build/include/linux/version.h cannot be found on this system.


And in fact, linux/version.h is missing!


I tried to make a link

from /lib/modules/4.1.12-1-default/build/include/generated/uapi/




so that the installer started to compile.

But it finally failed


The install log is below.


Could you help me?
