linux freezes on loading screen after installing the drivers every time?

Question asked by kiro on Dec 17, 2017

i face 2 problems when installing the ATI driver:

1- it says that a file named /lib/modules/4.10.0-28-generic/build/include/linux/version.h isn't solve it i execute this line in the terminal: sudo cp -v /usr/include/linux/version.h /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build/include/linux as this suggests


2- after installing it says "There were errors during installation. Details can be found in /usr/share/ati/fglrx-install.log"

here is the log file...please help


Check if system has the tools required for installation.

Uninstalling any previously installed drivers.
