error "vga=768" deprecated from GRUB-2 on Ubuntu Karmic


When I boot, I get a message ... it flashes by after I make my GRUB-2 boot target selection and press enter ... that says something about "vga=768 ... deprecated".

My /etc/default/grub file contains
Code:
# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards
# to update /boot/grub/grub.cfg. DO NOT EDIT grub.cfg directly.

GRUB_DEFAULT=0
#GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
GRUB_TIMEOUT=30
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="splash"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="splash vga=768"

# Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)
#GRUB_TERMINAL=console

# The resolution used on graphical terminal
# note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE
# you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'
#??? GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480
GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768

# Uncomment if you don't want GRUB to pass "root=UUID=xxx" parameter to Linux
#GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_UUID=true

# Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entrys
#GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_RECOVERY="true"
Also, when I run update-grub why doesn't it find the boot loaders for the laptop vendor diagnostic partition?

Sigh

... must I hack the scripts already??

So we have this brand new GRUB-2 and we already must hack the scripts to get what we want?

It might appear that the 40-custom script is the intended home for this sort of thing rather than some other script hack.

Is there no way to add things into /etc/default/grub and have them make the trip into /boot/grub/grub.cfg?

Cheers,
~~~ 8d;-/ Dan

According to the Ubuntu wiki, you can safely edit /etc/default/grub.

Yes, that is true, but following various links, there are script edits to the /etc/grub.d/xxx contents before all sorts of things work again.

This is such a common requirement that I'm dashed to understand how any developer could create a new and improved GRUB-2 that takes pages to describe the required script hacks to get a basic feature working -- especially when it was so easy before.

Heavy Sigh,

That's why many distributions have chosen to stay with Grub, until the Grub2 issues are worked out. I'm not sure what Ubuntu was thinking; there's no particular driver for Grub2 at this time.
