I just installed Mint 17 (64 bit, Cinnamon) from USB.
After installation, I used the hardware driver manager to install flgrx-updates. After rebooting, I get to grub, select Mint, and then it shows the splash screen with the green LM logo on it. It stays on this screen forever and never starts the desktop.
It's not frozen -- I am able to hit ctrl-alt-delete to reboot it. However, it never progresses from this splash screen.
Any idea on how I can fix this?
