Changing Amount of Lines for Helptext and updating borders?

#1 Post by delicatepc » Tue Jul 28, 2009 10:40 pm

I would like to increase the amount of lines that are used for the texthelp (from 4 to 6). I am able to do this by modifying the default.cfg from syslinux files to this:

Code: Select all

....
MENU CMDLINEROW -3
MENU HELPMSGROW -6  --- (originally was -4)
MENU HELPMSGENDROW -1
....
However after this modification the bottom border line is covered by the help text. Is there a way to move the border line up a couple lines?

thank you,
dpc

MENU MARGIN 0
MENU ROWS -11
MENU TABMSG
MENU TABMSGROW -3
MENU CMDLINEROW -3
MENU HELPMSGROW -6
MENU HELPMSGENDROW -1

You need to adapt the MENU ROWS value.

Read /doc/menu.txt in the Syslinux package for more info.
A negative value is relative to the calculated length of the
screen (25 for text mode, 28 for VESA graphics mode.)
