    GRUB2 and GFX drivers.

    Hi,

    I've been searching and trying a few different things but I can't seem to sort it out.
    I would like to have my GFX drivers loaded with GRUB2. It's Nvidia I'm using.

    Anyone who knows what to add to grub.cfg?

    Cheers.

    Details on settings in /etc/default/grub
    info -f grub -n 'Simple configuration'
    `GRUB_GFXMODE'
    Set the resolution used on the `gfxterm' graphical terminal. Note
    that you can only use modes which your graphics card supports via
    VESA BIOS Extensions (VBE), so for example native LCD panel
    resolutions may not be available. The default is `auto', which
    tries to select a preferred resolution. *Note gfxmode::.
    From a grub command line to see available settings
    vbeinfo

    vga=xxx is a deprecated boot option
    Use this with your monitor size in /etc/default/grub:
    GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768
