Boot splash resolution

Asked by Eshwar Andhavarapu on 2010-06-14

Hi,
similar to how the standard nouveau drivers show the boot splash screen and all messages at full resolution, isn't that possible somehow with the nvidia drivers installed? I've read a while ago it has to do with KMS and the frame buffer device or something. I am not too clued up on the actual technicality but why is it not possible to have it with nvidia drivers? its nice when lucid or maverick are first installed but as soon as the nvidia drivers are put on it goes to a crappy splash screen.

Where the guys has used 'sudo gedit' replace with:

gksudo gedit

As this is the CORRECT method. If you use kubuntu then use:

kdesu kate

Thanks

that worked!

wish we could just add in /etc/default/grub a line like GFX_PAYLOAD=<resolution> rather than editing that header file!

Grub is a strange creature. Glad you got the gold.

Thanks actionparsnip, that solved my question.
