contents of /etc/grub2.cfg

Description of problem: After commenting out GRUB_THEME in /etc/default/grub to remove the fancy grub theme and running grub2-mkconfig in F17 installed from RC3, grub menu shows up in a 'blackish' no theme style, much different from the 'grayish' theme present by default in F17 RC4 installs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: Always (tried on a virtual system, as well as normal install)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. comment out GRUB_THEME in /etc/default/grub
2. run: sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
3. reboot system and check the grub menu
Actual results: 

Expected results: grub2 menu with the 'grayish' theme similar to the one in installs from F17 RC4.

Comment 3 Mads Kiilerich 2012-05-28 15:18:07 EDT
Please explain what 'blackish' and 'greyish' mean - attach comparable images that show the difference.

Anyway: Why is it a bug that it apparently looks different?

Comment 5 Pratyush Sahay 2012-05-28 22:44:07 EDT
It seems to be more like a video mode issue. Its been classified as a bug because the video mode changes between installs from a F17 RC3 and from a F17 RC4.
Comment 6 Mads Kiilerich 2012-05-29 05:04:35 EDT
Fedora will now use graphical mode by default. 

It is not a bug that the video mode has changed.
