I managed to compile the 14.4 ATI drivers on Linux Mint 16 against the 3.15 kernel.

I have managed to get the 14.4 ATI drivers to compile against the new 3.15 kernel on Linux Mint 16. I followed this guide: http://bluehatrecord.wordpress.com/2014/05/04/amd-catalyst-14-4-for-linux-loses-support-for-linux-kernel-versions-above-3-11/ and I used the commands on this page as well as this linked patch. This is how I managed to do it. I am now running a 3.15 kernel with a 1080p RazorQT desktop and the ATI drivers work perfectly. This is a great victory. So if you are struggling with this on the 3.14 or 3.15 kernel; this is how I managed to do this and get it working.

Proof:

Updating a kernel by hand is a good way to learn more about Linux; so give it a try.
