    Trouble with grub...

    I tried to change the black grub/debian background screen, which I don't know how to do, and when I modified menu.lst to point to the file/splash image it did not work. When I uncommented the old boot/messages and took out what I put in and rebooted, I was given this error:

    Graphics file "(hd0,3)/boot/messages" missing, press any key to continue.

    And I am taken to the other grub screen that just has text, graphic mode or whatever. I can proceed to enter any OS/kernel but I would like to know how to fix this to get back to the black screen. The messages file is still there.

    I figured it out. This is how:

    mkdir grub-src
    cd grub-src
    wget http://ruslug.rutgers.edu/~mcgrof/gr...24.orig.tar.gz
    wget http://ruslug.rutgers.edu/~mcgrof/gr...0224-2.diff.gz
    tar zxvf grub_0.93+cvs20030224.orig.tar.gz
    gunzip grub_0.93+cvs20030224-2.diff.gz
    patch -p0 < grub_0.93+cvs20030224-2.diff
    cd grub-0.93+cvs20030224
    ./configure
    make
    make install

    Then edited menu.lst after adding the splashimages with synaptic:

    #gfxmenu (hd0,3)/boot/messages
    splashimage /boot/grub/splashimages/biosplash.xpm.gz

    Choose the biosplash to test. Then as root did update-grub. The output said no images found,but when I rebooted it was there and works properly.
