It hangs on 'virtual Ethernet', I have VMware installed. I have athlon 5350 apu, 64-bit, so radeon 3R video chip in it. I am using proprietary catalyst drivers. Latest lubuntu lts 14.04.01. So I guess that is VMware issue and probably it conflicts with catalyst drivers. What would you do next? Thanks a bunch
Hi German,
I'm going to give you a couple of links.  I don't know much about
VMWare, I use Virtual Box. But I think it would be good to check and see
if there is an issue with the AMD drivers first.

It would be nice to have the log file to look at, so see what is really
happening.  I can't remember if this was already suggested to you...
So, from your terminal type:
dmesg > ~/dmesg.log
This will save the output of the kernel messages to a log file called
dmesg.log in your home directory.  If you are able to then attach this
file that would be helpful.  This will show what is happening in the
boot process so we can look at the things before it hangs up
