After update, boot broken (mdadm and fbcon_decor) [Solved]

Post by Cpu86 » Mon Aug 05, 2013 12:22

Last night i did update the distro to kernel 3.4.0.
After boot it hangs in "Setting keymap to It" and switching to verbose "Alt+F1" it says:

Failed to open the fbcon_decor control device
mdadm: "something about empty array"
Failed to open the fbcon_decor control device

I don't have any raid. With a live distro i edited the sabayon-grub file and removed "domdadm" and rebuilt the grub.cfg.
After that, mdadm error didn't appear anymore but the boot process hangs again at fbcon_decor error.

Any help?
Thanks

Finally gave up trying and solved chrooting into sabayon root with the live distro and installing kernel 3.10.
