Description Alex Barker 2008-07-08 07:22:51 UTC
Updateing to the latest stable on grub seems to remove the /boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz but does not replace it.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade grub
2. reboot

Actual Results:  
no splash screen, strange things happen.

I also have display issues with this version.  There is no grub menu displayed (just an underscore cursor in upper left).  When booting starts, text is very garbled (noisy/unreadable), but then when kernel updates the card during boot, it clears up.

I have an ATI Radeon 9250.  I suspect grub's low-level drivers are not working correctly for the initial part of the boot.

Look at 231039
Comment 3 Alex Barker 2008-07-08 15:09:19 UTC
simple work around was to cp /usr/share/grub/splash.xpm.gz /boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

didn't try the emerge --config grub but that probably does close to the same thing.

This is pretty much a dupe of #231039 so i will close it.
