Changing GRUB image
I am using ubuntu 8.04
I read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto
got gnu-head.xpm.gz (it has 12 colors & 640x480 resolution)
Added following line at beginning of menu.lst
Remember no space after (hd0,5).
I did that mistake once and got error
Failed to read ((hd0,5)⏏/boot/grub/gnu-head.xpm.gz)
Press any key to continue
Coming back to point . Now run
Searching for GRUB installation directory ... found: /boot/grub
Searching for default file ... found: /boot/grub/default
Testing for an existing GRUB menu.lst file ... found: /boot/grub/menu.lst
Searching for splash image ... found: (hd0,5) /boot/grub/gnu-head.xpm.gz
Found kernel: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-24-generic
Found kernel: /boot/memtest86+.bin
Updating /boot/grub/menu.lst ... done
My root partition is /dev/sda6 (no separate boot or home partition)
My root partition is ext3.
Isn't this interesting.
If you want to change the image during bootup then see http://codeidol.com/unix/ubuntu/X11/...Splash-Screen/
