you do not need to compile grub again
Linux is about being able to do things ;>
[Not talking about aus9] From what i can gather, Grub devs aren't the most accomodating. I wanted to contribute to Grub years ago, but was told to direct development into grub-2. Yeah, right. 5(?) years later and still never hear of grub-2. What's the story behind grub's development ?
~I'd~ love to be able to compile Grub with Graphical support. I have a couple of my own grub patches that i'd like to apply to fedora 7's grub.. Below is my problem.
...I'll take this forum home and see if i can help out Couling.
Rpmbuild and compiling grub-0.97-13.src.rpm with graphics/splash support
Working with fedora7... I'm just wondering how to build grub with
graphical/splash screen support. I try rpmbuild --rebuild
grub-0.97-13.src.rpm, which fails with "autoreconf: automake failed with exit
status: 1". I also try rpm -i grub-0.97-13.src.rpm and then rpmbuild -bp
grub.spec which succeeds but the graphics patches dont seem to be applied to
the stage2 directory.
So i try: cd stage2 ; for i in *graphics ; mv $i `basename $i .graphics` ;
done and stage2 builds, but i when i replace the stage2 with the custom one, i
still get no graphics. Trying to make the whole project after "cd stage2 ; for
i ..." I get a header mismatch when "cd grub ; make"
I have a couple of patches which i like to incorporate into the graphical
splash version but can't do so because of this complicated build procedure
failing. (I don't have any probs with the console version). Could someone
please help me out.
