hello all,

For my OS I would like to know why for everytime rebooting or logging in, I am getting scrambled image which really looks odd for some few seconds.
May I know why it is happening?If possible is there any permanent solution for it?

Please let me know.

Post your /boot/grub/menu.lst. You might be passing some odd parameters to the kernel.

hello all

This is for the Knowledge of Maritime that here I am sending my /boot/grub/menu.lst.But I dont feel this is a problem.We are trying to change the defaultdepth to 16 by editing vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf.Can u help me if there is any mistake in my menu.lst or can u tell me how to modify defaultdepth directly from command line.I have tried with startx -- -depth 16 and startx -- -bpp 16 but invain.Give me some easier way.



# menu.lst - See: grub(8), info grub, update-grub(8)
# grub-install(8), grub-floppy(8),
# grub-md5-crypt, /usr/share/doc/grub
# and /usr/share/doc/grub-doc/.

## default num
# Set the default entry to the entry number NUM. Numbering starts from 0, and
# the entry number 0 is the default if the command is not used.
#
# You can specify 'saved' instead of a number. In this case, the default entry
# is the entry saved with the command 'savedefault'.
default 0

## timeout sec
# Set a timeout, in SEC seconds, before automatically booting the default entry
# (normally the first entry defined).
timeout 5

# Pretty colours
color cyan/blue white/blue
#splashimage=(hd0,7)/grub/splashimages/gentleblue.xpm.gz
splashimage=(hd0,7)/grub/splashimages/bike_gua.xpm.gz
## password ['--md5'] passwd
# If used in the first section of a menu file, disable all interactive editing
# control (menu entry editor and command-line) and entries protected by the
# command 'lock'
# e.g. password topsecret
# password --md5 $1$gLhU0/$aW78kHK1QfV3P2b2znUoe/
# password topsecret

# chainloader +1
#
# title Linux
# root (hd0,1)
# kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda2 ro
#

#
# Put static boot stanzas before and/or after AUTOMAGIC KERNEL LIST

### BEGIN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST

## DO NOT UNCOMMENT THEM, Just edit them to your needs

## ## Start Default Options ##
## default kernel options
## default kernel options for automagic boot options
## If you want special options for specifiv kernels use kopt_x_y_z

## e.g. kopt=root=/dev/hda1 ro
# kopt=root=/dev/sda3 ro

## default grub root device
## e.g. groot=(hd0,0)
# groot=(hd0,7)

## should update-grub create alternative automagic boot options

## should update-grub lock alternative automagic boot options

# lockalternative=false

## altoption boot targets option
## multiple altoptions lines are allowed
## e.g. altoptions=(extra menu suffix) extra boot options
## altoptions=(recovery mode) single
# altoptions=(recovery mode) single

## controls how many kernels should be put into the menu.lst
## only counts the first occurence of a kernel, not the

## should update-grub create memtest86 boot option

## memtest86=false
# memtest86=true

## ## End Default Options ##

Perhaps framebuffer support is not included in your kernel. You may want to either recompile your kernel with framebuffer support enabled or remove the italicized text below:

Code:
## ## End Default Options ##

title GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.12-1-p4-smp
root (hd0,7)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.12-1-p4-smp root=/dev/sda3 ro quiet splash=silent vga=0x317
initrd /initrd.img-2.6.12-1-p4-smp
savedefault
boot

hello friends

I removed the said line ie quiet splash=silent vga=0X317 from menu.lst but there is no change.

But I changed DefaultDepth to 16 in /etc/X11/xorg.conf and the Bufferimage is removed.But this process is too manual to do because for every time I install OS in different system I have to manually edit the conf file.

Do u have any solution to do it at a stroke such that this gets incorporated in installable CD and once the OS is installed the DefaultDepth is 16.

Is there something to be done with gdm or anaconda installer.

Please let me no soon

thanks

bye
