Thread: Reboot directly to another system

  1. #1

    Question Reboot directly to another system

    Hi all,

    in a previous version of openSUSE (I think it was v10.3), there was a possibility to directly/automatically start another OS after exiting (rebooting) openSUSE. This could be done through "right-clicking" on the Reboot (Restart) button from the KDE's log-off dialog and choosing the OS you wanted to be started after the restart.

    Please, does anybody know if this is possible in openSUSE 11.2 (KDE 4.4)?

    fli.

    PS: I know that GRUB enables that, but I prefer a "GUI way" rather than using command line and editing configuration files

    Yes, edit the /usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/kdmrc file and modify the
    line BootManager=None to BootManager=Grub if you use Grub or
    BootManager=Lilo if you use Lilo

    Works fine for me, just hold down the mouse at the Restart button and it will show a dropdown list of OSes to reboot to.

    It can also be configured through KDE's GUI:
    Personal Settings > Advanced > Login Manager > Shutdown
