Ati's FGLRX install returns an error and is unusable on a custom compiled kernel

I recently compiled Kernel 3.5.3 on an existing Debian Distro and i have run into an annoying problem that has rendered my system unfeasible.

Upon installing the most current Ati Driver i receive this error in installs log file

Detected a previous installation, /usr/share/ati/
Dryrun uninstall succeeded continuing with installation.
Check if system has the tools required for installation.
Uninstalling any previously installed drivers.
Forcing uninstall of AMD Catalyst(TM) Proprietary Driver.
No integrity verification is done.
restore of system environment completed
Uninstall fglrx driver complete.
For detailed log of uninstall, please see /etc/ati/fglrx-uninstall.log
System must be rebooted to avoid system instability and potential data loss.
/usr/share/ati/ completed with 0

Creating symlink /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.982/source ->

Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel.  Skipping...

cd /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.982/build; sh --nohints --uname_r=3.5.3 --norootcheck....(bad exit status: 1)

I do not have a clue at all where to start if anyone has had this problem please tell me what you did to fix this.
