The question is...: Do the drivers work? Did it successfully compile the kernel module? Do you have 3D accelearation? Does CCC launch? Any errors in /usr/share/ati/fglrx-install.log?
Interesting about the run level 1 thing you mentioned. I haven't read that anywhere, and AMD's own docs don't mention that either.
The problem is now fixed however. The root of the problem was I have a mullins APU, and the PCI ID's weren't included until kernel 3.15
I installed Kernel 3.15.2, then installed the catalyst drivers without issue.
I need to add, that I had to modify a file as described here:
Installing Catalyst on kernel >=3.14.0 (3.14.2 including)
Just in case someone else having the same problem as I finds themself here looking for a solution.
