PostSubject: Add a graphical background to your GRUB bootloader.   Mon Mar 15, 2010 6:00 pm

By default, the GRUB bootloader looks rather bland. It's a menu in a box with some instructions below the menu. It is possible, however, to customize GRUB to display a graphical background.

For example, let's assume you downloaded the file frag.xpm.gz. Log in as root, and copy that file to the /boot/grub directory:

# cp frag.xpm.gz /boot/grub

Now use your favorite editor to add or change the following line in your /boot/grub/grub.conf file:


The preceding line assumes that your /boot directory is located on the first partition on the first disk on your system. Change (hd0,0) to point to the disk and partition where your /boot directory resides, if it is different from the example.

Reboot and voilà: you now have a new background splash screen for GRUB.

An expert is a man who tells you a simple thing in a confused way in such a fashion as to make you think the confusion is your own fault.
