I got mine to run by using textinstall, then I got into text mode after
boot (before logging in), updated to latest version. Rebooted - froze
again after login.
In text mode, installed vim and radeonhd driver. Rebooted again - logged
in and switched to text mode asap. When I came back to graphical mode,
the login has passed the freezing point.
Now it logs in just fine.

Not sure yet if it's stable, though.
