There is a know issue with fglrx drivers and kernel 4.2.x. I found that there is a temporary solution is to compile driver with gcc4.9, but I don't know how to do that. I have fresh Fedora 23 install.

I don't think this will work, first of all: we don't have gcc 4.9.x in Fedora 23 (even not in 22). And the kernel is compiled using 5.1.1, so for compiling modules you have to use 5.1.1 too, otherwise kernel will complain. I think you have to wait until AMD fixes the driver. The radeon driver shipped with Fedora doesn't work for you?

It works but the power managment is much worse than with proprietary and laptop all the time is too hot.
