Configure console menu colors

As of DebianWheezy, there is no support for easily modifying the colors of the console menu. /etc/default/grub does not have any variables that can set the colors for this video mode.

The easiest way to modify the console menu colors is to create a new file /boot/grub/custom.cfg and put your configurations there:


set color_normal=light-gray/black

If you configured /boot/grub/custom.cfg, there is no need to run update-grub; the file will be automatically loaded by /boot/grub/grub.conf at boot.
