Hi and welcome to LinuxQuestions!

Well, first you should tell us which driver you're trying to install, at which point in the installation process you got this error message (or maybe this part of a more extensive error) and what are the details inside /var/log/jockey.log. Most likely the solution to the problem is inside the auto-generated log file, but without any information we cannot be of much help.

yeah, I've got the same problem on Ubuntu 12.04.
That graphic card is sending me mad!!!

You can try to avoid having to reinstall everything removing the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.
It works for me, but I can't install fglrx anyway...

Did you have any luck with that?
