Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2010-05-06 20:01:11 UTC
Given grub can boot into multiple OS's (some which are distinctly not RHEL) it was decided from someone (PM? not sure) that we shouldn't have a logo or branding at the grub screen.

I talked to the designers about this, and the consensus was we should just go with black.

I've built redhat-logos with a black splash.xpm.gz, but that's not optimal.  Ideally we'd just take the splash line out of the grub config entirely.  This way we avoid the intermediate switch to non-native mode.

Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2010-05-21 14:02:34 UTC
One other issue we're hitting with this is the selection color is black too, so you can't see which item is selected very well.

So we probably need to get this fixed for GA (or somehow change the selection color?)
