grub menu tweaking

leave a comment »

I like to tweak the way my grub menu works. Here’s the options I change:

  • set timeout to 3 seconds
  • disable hiddenmenu
  • add these options to kopt: noisapnp vga=791 pty.legacy_count=0
  • instead of something like groot=(hdx,y), set groot to the uuid from kopt (without the “UUID=” part)
  • alternative=false (if something doesn’t work, I can add the “single” option myself, thank you)

Remember to run sudo update-grub afterwards
