I have a lenovo z585 laptop with AMD A8 processor and ATI Radeon 7640G Graphics. Initially when I installed fedora 19 the laptop got heated up very fast. So i installed the akmod-catalyst drivers for the graphics after taking a look at this .Now the heating has gone down but there's a new problem. Sometimes at the startup i get a blank screen and the computer freezes.

When i reported this bug,i was told that it was the proprietary catalyst driver that kills the gnome shell before it starts up.

Is there any solution to this where i can have a smooth startup?
