Catalyst and ATI open source drivers aren't working on AMD E-350 APU

Hi, I'm trying to install video drivers on my E-350 notebook (AMD ATI HD 6310), but any driver is working. The AMD Catalyst proprietary installs and finds the right screen resolution, but hardware acceleration doesn't work and the ATI open source one installs too, but neither the resolution is correct. I don't know what to do. I've followed each step of ATI and Catalyst installation tutorial from arch wiki.

EDIT: With catalyst installed, running "$ lsmod | grep fglrx" and "$ fglrxinfo", I get "error: unable to open display (null)" as output. I think it isn't good. "$ glxinfo | grep "direct rendering"" output says I don't have glxinfo installed.

Please, help!

just adding some facts: When I try to pacman -S catalyst-dkms catalyst-utils, when installing catalyst-utils a error happens, saying: "Your kernel headers for kernel 3.7.6-1-ARCH cannot be found at /usr/lib/modules/3.7.6-1-ARCH/build or /usr/lib/modules/3.7.6-1-ARCH/source"

modprobe fglrx says fglrx module was not found.

Have you installed kernel headers? (# pacman -S linux-headers)



I run a laptop that also uses the E-350 chip, and the xf86-video-ati driver has always worked with no issues.

MSI GS60 Ghost
Asus Zenbook Pro UX501VW
Lenovo Thinkpad X120e
