  1. Make your changes in /etc/default/grub:
    • Add kernel options to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT. In my current case:
      Code:
      GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet video.use_native_backlight=0"
    • Always boot the last selected kernel (instead of the first one):
      Code:
      GRUB_DEFAULT=saved
      GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT=true
    • Disable grub showing up at all per default (hold "shift" to show it anyway):
      Code:
      GRUB_TIMEOUT=0
  2. Apply your changes
    Code:
    sudo update-grub

Code:
#!/bin/bash

eth_regex=^eth

true=true
false=

address=
have_iface_flag=$false
while read -r word1 word2 word3 word4 _
do
    case $word1 in  
         iface )
