Ubuntu 16.04 incompatible with fglrx! DON'T USE!!

The next LTS version of Ubuntu does not work with AMD's proprietary drivers (fglrx). If you upgrade to it, all your miners will be busted.

    Doesn't the amdgpu driver with amdgpu pro userland binary provide full opencl 2 support on the new xorg-server? Performance is solid for opencl, opengl, and even Vulkan (although Vulkan is still buggy) from what I read.

    @work It doesn't give details, but the release note for amdgpu pro says it doesn't currently support Multi-GPU, nor full OpenCL functionality (1.2 btw, but that's all ethminer uses).

    @dlehenky ahhh, the multi-GPU detail I had not seen. That's a pitty.

    There may also be issues with the move to systemd. That should be expected for a completely new startup sequence. Since I have not and am not going to upgrade I suppose I should not comment further with no personal experience.
