Error appeared after I updated to kernel 2.6.32-24.43-generic yesterday. Seems to be a build error with this kernel version.

Can't install _any_ fglrx version. No matter if manually or per jockey.

I am not Linux savvy but I am affected by this issue. Anyone found a work around? I find it odd that I did not have these issues in Wubi but when I switched to a dual-boot the drivers for ATI won't install. Hope this is addressed soon until then this blinding resolution is to difficult to work with.
