You have been subscribed to a public bug:

affected version: Ubuntu 15.10 64bit 
using the Ubuntu "Additional drivers" function it shows:
AMD/ ATI: Kaveri [Radeon R7 Graphics]

with options:
x.org. ...

choosing fglrx or fglrx-updates initiates the install. No errors
reported in this stage.

After a system REBOOT:

- boot-up process stops at splashscreen
- no access to terminal possible (CTRL+ALT+...) is not showing any results.
- display port is inactive (monitor is switching to standby)
- no LAN / WLAN access (SSH impossible)

Hardware shutdown:
- reboot is showing no effect
- reboot 4sec is exiting as expected

The fglrx install was repeated 3 times on this machine (followed by fresh install)
also showing same behavior on an AMD E-450

error was not present in 15.04 or 14.04LTS
