   Can anyone tell me, 1. how to get that page to display longer or
2. Just what is that page for, being that it can't be read?

Answer to 1: press the Pause button.  Then Enter to continue.


Thanks!  I can't remember how many years ago since I last used that key.

For others having the same problem, the message says that the vga=xxx
option is going away. Then it says to add the set gfxpayload=Your resolutionx24,your resolution. A search for grub(2) only turns up changlogs saying that it (gfxpayload) has been added.

It doesn't say where you do this though.  A google search turned up
a solution <http://harrison3001.blogspot.com/2009/09/grub-2-graphical-boot-tips-to-set.html>
which did work, pretty much.

The problem is that console-setup no longer works as before on my console. My X resolution is 1650x1050, I want that for my consoles
as well.  The current grub2, with the above fix, does not provide that.

Hope this helps someone else.
