https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GRUB#Framebuffer_resolution should be removed from menu.lst due that GRUB was changed completely to use for grub-common and grub-bios, not grub-legacy

+1. Grub2 got a big WTF from me when I looked at it. The original grub is so much more clean and simple.

Only catch here is that it gets hard to support old packages that aren't maintained anymore.

I'll try to maintain the package as long as I can!

I'm glad there's still people who prefer this over the complete mess grub2 is.

fosskers commented on 2013-01-25 10:27

Thanks for taking this over, darose.

darose commented on 2013-01-23 15:01

If anyone else would prefer to take it, please say so. If not, I'll volunteer to take it on. I don't have loads of expertise building grub, but I use the package, so I'd prefer not to see it orphaned.

I migrated to GRUB2, so please pick up this package...
