I'm running a fresh install of Debian Testing, and would love to be able to tell smxi to always drop a "vga=794' into my menu.lst when it updates the kernel.

I'd also like to be able to 'return' to a place 'higher' in the script (say, post d-u) for all of those times when I remember I forgot to do something. It would save me from having to exit the script and restart it.

Thanks in advance, and keep up the awesome work!

If you use the "kopt" line in your menu.lst anytime update-grub is run everything in that line will be added to the kernel.

if you are using grub2....there is another way.

Edit /etc/default/grub with root powers

these 2 lines

the top line affects your normal menuentry while
the bottom line affects your recovery entries (if you use them)

edit this line to make it

then run command (with root powers)

:: Code ::

reboot to check

(quiet was my earlier option)
