    Default Christmas Grub

    The Christmas grub screen is very cool. Thanks to all that made it happen!

    Default Re: Christmas Grub

    Wasted on me though, only reboot for a kernel update. Maybe I'll get to see it on my notebook.

    Cool Re: Christmas Grub

    I went back through my archive and found that you can use the following command to eliminate those pesky penguins.

    Open up a terminal session and type in:

    Code:
    sudo gfxboot --change-config penguin=0
    This is how it is set per my old information but I have not tried to change this in openSUSE 12.1 yet:

    Code:
    
    penguin theme likelihood in percent
    
    1)   -1 = auto and shows up around Christmas time (default).
    2)    0 = never as command above.
    3) 100 = show penguins every time, for all real penguin lovers.
    Thank You,

    Thank you, James.
    I haven't updated my (only) 12.1 kernel yet, but I bet that's the important update they had in mind. I'm going to test your command as soon as I have seen what I'm going to be missing.

    Love it!!! I see how some might not like it. Maybe if you give people a choice in the future if they want it or not? After all Linux is about freedom!
    Thank you, I love it.

    It works (on both 11.4 and 12.1)

    Code:
    # gfxboot --show-config | grep penguin
    ; If the penguin screen is active, section 'penguin' is automatically added
    ; penguin theme likelihood (in percent, -1 = auto)
    penguin=-1
    [penguin]
    
    # gfxboot --change-config  penguin=0
    
    # gfxboot --show-config | grep penguin
    ; If the penguin screen is active, section 'penguin' is automatically added
    ; penguin theme likelihood (in percent, -1 = auto)
    penguin=0
    [penguin]

    Thanks for the info on working please_try_again. My openSUSE 12.1 VM starting showing the penguin startup this weekend, but I have not rebooted my real copy yet. I am undecided as to if I will modify the default or not. On one hand the Penguins are cute and on the other hand it is annoying. I am just enough in the middle of the road to just let it work as normal automatically knowing that all too soon, it will stop again.

    Thank You,

    I love penguins in the Antarctic, not dancing around 30 boot entries on half a dozen computers around me. I don't need to mention how often I boot the wrong OS, with or without the dancing penguins actually. Btw I have a stuffed Tux sitting in a corner, but he's quite and doesn't disturb me.
