Synopsis

                     terminal [options] [console] [serial]

Specify a terminal for user interaction. This command is available only if GRUB was compiled with serial support. If both console and serial are specified, GRUB uses the first terminal where a key is pressed, or the first after the timeout has expired. If neither is specified, GRUB displays the current setting.

Options

--dumb

The terminal is a dumb terminal; if this option is not specified, the terminal is assumed to be VT100-compatible.

--lines=num

The terminal has num lines. The default is 24.

--silent

Suppress the prompt to hit any key (useful if your system does not have a terminal).

--timeout=secs

Specify the timeout in seconds.
