These days I start my Mandriva with the following grub parameters (in the grub command line or in the menu.lst file):
kernel (hd0,8)/boot/vmlinuz-188.8.131.52 root=/dev/hda9 resume=/dev/hda7 splash= silent vga=788
It works, but I would like to know:
- what does the "resume" option do ?
- is "resume=/dev/hda7" consistent with "root=/dev/hda9"?
- what means "splash" and "silent" ?
Thanks for your help !
