Yesterday I installed new Driver for my Soundcard and today the Sound doesn't work. I found an Answer for this Problem and I fixed it in /etc/default/grub but no when I try sudo update-grub it comes this error: */usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig: 7: /etc/default/grub: splash: not found *

This is my grup file:

# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
# /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
# For full documentation of the options in this file, see:
#   info -f grub -n 'Simple configuration'

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=“quiet splash pci=use_crs“

GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="splash quiet"

# Uncomment to enable BadRAM filtering, modify to suit your needs
# This works with Linux (no patch required) and with any kernel that 
# the memory map information from GRUB (GNU Mach, kernel of FreeBSD . 

# Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)

# The resolution used on graphical terminal
# note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports 
via VBE
# you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'

# Uncomment if you don't want GRUB to pass "root=UUID=xxx" parameter 
to Linux

# Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries

# Uncomment to get a beep at grub start
#GRUB_INIT_TUNE="480 440 1"

I add this line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=“quiet splash pci=use_crs“ and commit this line out: #GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

I am using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Thanks for your help!

  • What was the point of changing: "quiet splash" to "splash quiet"? – George Udosen Aug 27 '17 at 14:07
  • From "quiet splash" to “quiet splash pci=use_crs“ – Jakob Aug 27 '17 at 14:11

    Also change GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="splash quiet" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" - that entry should normally be empty. – Byte Commander Aug 27 '17 at 14:17

Please look closely at the line

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=“quiet splash pci=use_crs“

You will see the should be ", perhaps you copied and pasted it from some where. Please re-write that line and use your keyboard don't copy and paste. And the line:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="splash quiet"

has its entry repeated in

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash pci=use_crs"

Make that line:
