how to enable the grub splash screen on fedora

the grub splash screen is a graphical boot up instead of the text mode. having a grub splash screen is not only pretty but sort of gives continuity to the entire linux graphics experience. and this is how you do it

its a 2 step process:

the first step is to install the theme

yum -y install grub2-starfield-theme

the next step is to add a line as root to /etc/default/grub

echo "GRUB_THEME=\"/boot/grub2/themes/system/theme.txt\"" >> /etc/default/grub

then modify the line

sed -i 's/GRUB_TERMINAL_OUTPUT/#GRUB_TERMINAL_OUTPUT/g' /etc/default/grub

the last step is to rebuild the grub config with

 grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

and on your next reboot you should see graphics all the way
