Description Michael Janich 2006-09-25 02:56:36 EDT
Description of problem:
I've commented out #hiddenmenu in /boot/grub/grub.conf to see
the menu (I like that). Now the selection bar (that you can move
with cursor up/down is black on a black background and can hardly
be seen.

I recommend to use a high contrast solution, eg. white on black.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -q grub

How reproducible:
Comment out "hiddenmenu" in /boot/grub/grub.conf
and reboot.

Here is my grub.conf:
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE:  You do not have a /boot partition.  This means that
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
#          root (hd0,0)
#          kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda1
#          initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.17-1.2647.fc6)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.17-1.2647.fc6 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.17-1.2647.fc6.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.17-1.2630.fc6)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.17-1.2630.fc6 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.17-1.2630.fc6.img
title WinXP
