I was trying to install an ATI catalyst driver on my Dell Precision M4700. I received the following error: /lib/modules/3.8.0-33-generic/build/include/linux/version.h cannot be found on this system.
The error is true; the file doesn't exist.
Here is the solution.
Create a symbolic link, not in the directory as mentioned above, because the /build/ directory is a symbolic link!
and then create the link
sudo ln -s /lib/modules/3.8.0-33-generic/build/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h version.h
NB. It's obvious that you replace 3.8.0-33-generic with your linux header!
Sadly enough the installation of the Catalyst driver still isn't successful, in my case. To be continued... (I guess)
