Hello from Gregg C Levine
What of the many replies by Okuji do you not understand? The versions
of GRUB that we release, and in a way support, do not use splash
screens. Those versions are modified by the vender. Yours resembles
the ones that I recall seeing mentioned in a statement from the Fedora
group, and it might have also come from Gentoo, and also from SuSe,
now Novell Desktop solutions. And certainly Debian might also be

But unless you did go to your distribution/vendor support channel and
they told you to ask us, we can't help. Nor are we going to, because
all of the ones who use splash screens are modified versions.

What i meant is that i have to comment out the following line in
grub.conf to be able to see anything grub has to show:
We *do not have* such a splash screen. We *do not use* grub.conf.
Have you
ever used the official version? Your problem is completely
irrelevant to us.

It wasn't quite clear after the 1st reply, but after the 2nd and 3rd i see that grub.conf is an add-on by the distros, including the splash image. Since the official version doesn't have a splash image, i do not think i will be trying to official version, because i already have it working with a terminal-based menu. But if i ever have free cycles to spend on the splash image on a BarcoMed monitor, i'll look into it.

P.S. As i said, this is mostly a cosmetic issue.

Thanks for clarification.
