my IcAROS /boot/grub/grub.cfg file (only icaros before 1.5.2)

I gives this to you to explain how you can play with graphical modes (cf this post) and switch between VESA and NATIVE modes under IcAROS.

The first menu entry is begining at the line menuentry “Icaros Desktop”. The first entry in the list is the one that will be used by default.

There is no driver given in the command line (no “nouveau.hidd” or VESA appearing), so it takes the last config saved inside IcAROS. If you want to be sure to boot in VESA mode your have to write down something like “vesa=1600×1200@60” in the boot line.

You can change the background image with the “background_image” option. Why isn’t it as simple in linux ?
