Thread: do gfxboot/graphical boot docs exist?

    Default do gfxboot/graphical boot docs exist?

    Hi all,

    I'd like to know some stuff about gfxboot and so on. Background is that I want rather detailed info in my boot menu, this leads to very long lines, a bit too long for the text-only grub and - because the text starts too much to the right - also too long for the graphical boot screen.

    So - how can I reconfigure the graphical boot screen so that the grub menu lines start more to the left?

    Aside of that I'd like to know what cpio options are used to create a "message"-file.

    best regards
    Dirk

    Hmm, no input from anybody within a week.

    So I guess I have to analyze the sources. *sigh* That will take some time.

    Best regards

    This is a real bummer. I'm currently an Ubuntu user, but decided to try gfxboot on my laptop. Installed, configured, runs great! Trying to create/modify/etc. a new message file seems easy enough, however, the problem is trying to (pre)view the changes you've just made. Rebooting everytime seems a bit daunting! I cannot seem to get the following commands to execute properly.
    Code:
    $: gfxboot --help
    bash: gfxboot: command not found
    $: gfxboot --preview
    bash: gfxboot: command not found
    $: gfxboot --test
    bash: gfxboot: command not found
    $: man gfxboot
    No manual entry for gfxboot
    These can be issued with or without super-user privileges and they return the same message. Does anybody have any suggestions? Where are the docs (if they exist)? Is there some sort of reference/dependency that I should express somewhere? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
