Bug Description

Binary package hint: grub2

Grub's 915resolution module requires matching 915resolution userspace programs for searching for video modes. Running 915resolution at the grub prompt suggests two command line arguments, -l, and -r. However grub's module doesn't support those. Instead, those are command-line options for the userspace 915resolution application. That application doesn't exist in karmic, or jaunty, or intrepid.

What exactly does `doestn't support those' mean?
The 915resolution source file for the GRUB module parses -l and -r and
should behave differently.
If not then it's somewhere a bug in parsing them from the commandline.

Running "915resolution -l" on the grub command line reports:

error: Unknown argument `-l'

Likewise for -r
