I believe this to be a simple problem with a simple solution. I have Linux Mint 5 installed on a HP laptop whose screen resolution is 1280x800 - it's a widescreen laptop. I installed startup-manager and it messed up my grub. The only problem I'm having is the fact that I can't seem to find my progress bar during the boot process - it has disappeared and I'm seeing text instead of the graphics display. All I need to know, after uninstalling startup-manager, the program that started this mess in the first place, is what do I need to do to get that graphical progress-bar image back? It's that simple! There has to be a simple solution to this problem.
What line in menu.lst controls this function and what should it be? How does screen resolution effect this behavior? My menu.lst is as follows:
title Linux Mint, kernel 2.6.24-16-generic
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-16-generic root=/dev/sda6 ro quiet splash
title Linux Mint, kernel 2.6.24-16-generic (recovery mode)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-16-generic root=/dev/sda6 ro single
title Linux Mint, kernel memtest86+
