OK, I just updated the book to grub-2.02~beta2. The build instructions
are the same as before but omit a sed for a fix no longer needed.
Testing on the same grub.cfg that I was using (Debian's with manual
edits for LFS) worked without modification.
I did not add a comment about rebuilding after fontconfig is available
in BLFS. That's probably appropriate for the hint though.
If you write the hint, I'll be glad to review it, but I probably won't
test it. I don't want to re-enable uefi on my laptop. I have no use
I'll note that at one time I played with customizing grub2 and came up with:
# if loadfont /grub/unifont.pf2 ; then
# loadfont /grub/unifont.pf2
# set gfxmode="800x600;640x480"
# insmod gfxterm
# insmod vbe
# insmod tga
# terminal_output gfxterm
# if terminal_output gfxterm ; then true ; else
# terminal gfxterm
# if background_image /grub/lfs.tga ; then
# set menu_color_normal=light-gray/black
# set menu_color_highlight=white/black
# set menu_color_normal=cyan/blue
# set menu_color_highlight=white/blue
Sets the background image, changes the font, and font
foreground/background colors. I don't use it though. I don't think a
lot of time is warranted to customize a screen that is normally up for 5
seconds or less when booting (which I try to avoid anyway).
