    Phoronix: Red Hat's Plymouth Sees New Activity

    Plymouth, the Red Hat graphical boot loader replacement that leverages kernel mode-setting to provide a clean and flicker-free boot experience, is in the process of receiving a number of new updates. Plymouth right now is largely just used by Fedora, but it's been picked up for Mandriva 2010, and Canonical was going to switch to it in Ubuntu 9.10, but that decision was retracted...

    I understood those, so I just pasted the part that I hadn't seen before.

    What I don't understand is what happens when those 4 lines are executed.

    Comparing the first 446 bytes of stage1 with first 446 bytes of MBR gives that they are not the same.

    I would have expected that.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you can press 'esc' to switch to and from text mode when booting in graphics mode.

    I think I use grub1 as well.
    Code:
    [root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa|grep -i grub
    grub-0.97-13.2
    [root@localhost ~]#
    but I don't have --device-map

    Does this install stage1?
    Code:
    grub --device-map=/dev/null --batch <<EOT
    device (hd0) /dev/loop0
    root (hd0,0)
    EOT

    I don't know what grub has todo with that topic, but /dev/sda must be wrong, even in chroot.
    I did first try /dev/xvda, but gave an error.

    With /dev/sda it wrote the stage1 in MBR.

    Do you know an easier way?

    Are you kidding? Text mode is so much prettier than ANY Fedora Theme

    I have been using RedHat/Fedora for 9 years, and would never change, but their themes are the ugliest of all Linux distributions!
