UPDATE-GRUB-GFXPAYLO… Ubuntu System Manager’s Manual UPDATE-GRUB-GFXPAYLO…

NAME

update-grub-gfxpayload — update /boot/grub/gfxblacklist.txt

SYNOPSIS

update-grub-gfxpayload

DESCRIPTION

update-grub-gfxpayload updates /boot/grub/gfxblacklist.txt from source
files in /usr/share/grub-gfxpayload-lists/blacklist/, which disables
GRUB’s gfxpayload=keep facility with certain graphics cards. It should
normally only need to be called internally by packages.

If you need to disable gfxpayload=keep locally (perhaps because your sys‐
tem starts up with a black or corrupt screen), then you do not need this
program. Instead, add this line to /etc/default/grub:

GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=text
