    install fail system crash Mint 17.2, Radeon R7 200 (Asus A88XM-E)


      Unable to install driver after several attempts. Generally system crash on startx after attempting install of Catalyst 3 different ways.

      Is Mint 17.2 orAsus A88XM-E unsupported?



      Before each attempt, fresh install of Mint 17.2 from DVD, followed by
      apt-get update
      apt-get upgrade




      Attempt #1

          apt-get install fglrx

          Crashes the system.

      Downloaded these:


         ...and followed http://www2.ati.com/relnotes/amd-catalyst-graphics-driver-installer-notes-for-linux-operating-systems.pdf
          including amdconfig --initial


          upon typing 'startx' system crash.
