Fedora 10 boot graphics

Fedora 10 has a nice new boot screen. However, I found that I could only see a basic text loading bar at the bottom of the screen. This is due to graphics card support and from what I have read there will be many more cards supported in F11.

If you can’t wait that long, you can try it out. This does not work on all systems, some systems don’t boot when this parameter is present, but if you would like to try it out, and you know what your up to, add “VGA=0×317” to your boot loader kernel line (at boot time to start with).

Mine looks like this:

kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64 ro root=UUID=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx rhgb quiet vga=0×317

I tried this on my F10 x86_64 system and it looks great, so I have added the change to /etc/grub/grub.conf.

Good work Fedora!
