Unable to install radeon catalyst drivers

I've been trying to install the proprietary AMD drivers for an ATI card, however, it keeps complaining about kernel version/ kernel headers. The kernel is up to date and I'm hesitant to force an install as it caused massive headache last time.

If I run the sh script downloaded from their website, I receive the following:
/lib/modules/3.5.3-1.fc17.x86_64/build/include/linux/version.h cannot be found on this system.
I could only turn up results on this error in regards to VMware unfortunately. I'm not sure why this is happening

And on the package in the respository:
Dependency Resolution Errors:

Package: kmod-catalyst-3.5.2-3.fc17.x86_64-12.8-1.fc17.1.x86_64 (rpmfusion-nonfree-updates)
    Requires: kernel-uname-r = 3.5.2-3.fc17.x86_64
    Installed: kernel-3.3.4-5.fc17.x86_64 (@koji-override-0/$releasever)
        kernel-uname-r = 3.3.4-5.fc17.x86_64
    Installed: kernel-3.5.1-1.fc17.x86_64 (@updates)
        kernel-uname-r = 3.5.1-1.fc17.x86_64
    Installed: kernel-3.5.3-1.fc17.x86_64 (@updates)
        kernel-uname-r = 3.5.3-1.fc17.x86_64
    Available: kernel-debug-3.3.4-5.fc17.x86_64 (fedora)
        kernel-uname-r = 3.3.4-5.fc17.x86_64.debug

        kernel-uname-r = 3.5.3-1.fc17.x86_64.debug
checking my kernel version, I receive:
So do I need the exact kernel version it's asking?
Am I just out of luck with these drivers or is there a way to get them installed without outright doing a force install with fingers crossed?

Installed dev packages and that seemed to correct the issue
