Quickly change GRUB Picture on Mint Linux - gfxgrub-change

Postby laedrus on Fri Jun 19, 2009 2:48 pm

Hey,

I know that this hasn't to do with support, but i developed a tool that i think will help everyone to have a more customized Mint Linux.

As the feedback is low (1 person) on the development forum, i post here for more users(that i think visit more support than devel) see, use, and provide feedback, please reply on the devel original post.

That isn't a stable version but is working fine. With the adjustments i did yesterday

Thanks!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The picture on the other page looks nice :)
But be warned - a mistake here may stop your PC from booting (but it should be possible to fix from the live CD)

Husse, did you observed total GRUB crashing??

What i could observe with the guys trying it is that some pictures works, and some not, worst case is get a grub with black background, but is mentioned on the top of the other post the fix for it (just changing a symlink), hey, good idea, i'll add this option (fix). EDIT : already added on version 0.3.6 =)

But i'm trying to get in touch with guys that know more about grub-gfxboot because is some image specs that i'm missing, is causing some pictures to work, and some not....

Anyone who wants a more easily customized grub is encouraged to test, and if you do, please, help me to figure out what's wrong with some images =)

No I have not observed a total grub crash :)
But edit menu.lst the wrong way and you're in trouble
