  fglrx and fglrx-updates install crashes system: no screen access

Status in fglrx-installer package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  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
