I'm working on systems that have 10.04.3 installed as an upgrade from 8.04. So these systems have Grub 0.97 installed.
I want to get verbose console output during startup, so I want to eliminate the "quiet" option being passed to the kernel by the generated Grub menu options. I see there's a commented option in the /boot/grub/menu.lst file:
## additional options to use with the default boot option, but not with the ## alternatives ## e.g. defoptions=vga=791 resume=/dev/hda5 # defoptions=quiet splash
I know edits to the menu.lst would be lost upon the next 'update-grub'. So where, or what, do I set so that a subsequent 'update-grub' invocation will build the menu.lst file the way I want?
I have some newer systems (10.04 and 12.04 clean installs) that have an /etc/default/grub file, but my Grub 0.97 systems don't have that file. Could I just create it and add
to get what I want (no "quiet" arg to the kernels) in menu.lst?
