Re: Well up and running, now anyone know a GUI GRUB Editor?

So then is there no way to resize the loader in GRUB 0.97?  That was the one thing I liked with Ubuntu (and after seeing how to edit the grub.conf, the only thing).  Just prefered it for the cleaner look than pixelated 640x480 on my 1280x1024 monitor, can;t imagine it'll be much better when I upgrade my monitor to a 1920x1080.

Actually it should be quite simple. In a Fedora system the grub.conf
file contains this line:


After boot, this location is /boot/grub/, and the file is a gzipped xpm
pix map image 640 x 480 pixels at 72 pixels/inch. You can use gimp to
convert any jpg or other bitmapped image to this size and density, save
it to xpm format, then gzip it. You can give it any name (foo.xpm.gz)
you want as long as your splashimage= line points to it by name.
