Help Make Progress Window Return

Postby alligoodw on Fri Oct 17, 2008 8:36 pm

Okay! I'm using Linux Mint 5. I installed Startup-Manager and I don't like the results. While booting, I see text scrolling down the screen instead of the 'progress bar window' that I'm accustomed to seeing. I don't want to see text. I want to see the progress window only. Using Startup-Manager, I tried and selected restore defaults but nothing changed. I'm not having a problem with the OS itself, just don't like the bootup appearance.

How do I manually restore the progress bar window that was the default? Help!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I don't know if you have to change the resolution though :)

Don't try it if you don't understand that post.
Hang around a while and get a bit more understanding and then come back to it

This is something i just disabled, so i think i can help you. In terminal type "cd /boot/grub" then sudo gedit menu.lst (this will probably prompt you for your password). This should bring up a text document and in that text document you should see a line something like this," kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-16-generic root=/dev/sda5 ro quiet splash" it is under where it says ## ## End Default Options ##. you are probably missing the "ro quite splash" part of that line. Just add that and save, when you reboot it SHOULD use that progress bar you love.

me@muffins ~ $ cd /boot/grub
me@muffins /boot/grub $ sudo gedit menu.lst
your terminal should look something like that except with yourusername@localhost instead of me@muffins

Hope that helps,
