You need to rerun grub2-mkconfig after every change in /etc/default/grub. This was likely the culprit.

Since some weeks back grub start working property, I don't changed anything related with grub, only used grub2-mkconfig due to kernel update, then I unfortunately can't say whats was going wrong before.

Using grub-2.00 on my Gentoo Box it's ignores GFXMODE with specific resolution or 'auto', use 640x480 and doesn't use framebuffer.

I reported on Gentoo bug tracker:


and it's appear to be a hardware specific issue.

I'm using:
Acer 5737Z laptop - nVidia Geforce 9400m G

Using grub-1.99 it works.

Thank you!
