I have applied the gfxboot patches and have grub displaying a 800x600 jpg image created using gimp.

Now I want to go to the next step and modify the position of the text menu as well as update the help and language files, however I can't find any information on the subject (except that the master files may have been in HTML format).

Could someone:

a) point me in the direction to any documentation covering the creation of files for inclusion into 'message.xxxxx'

b) explain the purpose of the individual files within 'message.xxxx'


Ideally a link to a 'master' theme with instructions on how to compile would be perfect :lol::-)


Just to reiterate, I know how to change the background jpeg image for a gfxboot patched grub and this is not a request about 'splashimage' which is something totally different.



This info if it exists would be great for inclusion into gentoo gfxboot how-to.

Update: I eventually found this information:

http://svn.faunos.com/pkgbuilds/extra/gfxboot/trunk/gfxboot.html

(or http://svn.faunos.com/pkgbuilds/extra/gfxboot/trunk/gfxboot.txt)


I haven't tried it yet but it looks like the right stuff, I hope it helps someone else as well.
