Install the drivers on GNOME, stuck at boot

Asked by Nicola Hinssen

Hi there,

I'm experiencing this problem a long time now.. I can't get fglrx and GNOME working..
After the installation, Ubuntu hangs at black screen.
I've searched the whole internet (well... almost) and still haven't got a solution.

My specs:
HP Pavilion 17-f049nd notebook
AMD A10-5745M APU with Radeon HD 8610G Graphics
AMD Radeon R7 M260 Graphics

Right now I'm running Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 with kernel (but the problem exists in more distros and kernels)

--What I already tried to find the solution:--

- Debian
- Arch
Installed the driver (tried both fglrx and fglrx-updates) via:
- Additional Driver menu
- Terminal
- AMD website (prebuilt and manual)
I´ve also tried to install all over the web adviced prerequisited packages
Manual configurations
Different kernels (up- and downgrades

I really hope someone can point me to the right direction!

Thanks in advance
