    Default Bootsplash/ Grub Menu remains unchanged after upgrade from openSUSE 12.3 to 13.1

    I upgraded the openSUSE 12.3 to 13.1 and the grub menu remains unchanged, it shows the openSUSE 12.3 entry instead of 13.1 (the other entry being the other Linux I use on the other partition). How can I change this? I want to see the openSUSE 13.1 being displayed by grub, not the old openSUSE 12.3

    When using this 12.3 entry the system boots in 13.1, then this is only a text change.

    Make sure the menu has the new kernel version(3.11.6). If not, go into YaST
    and re-install it. Otherwise, use Henk's method.

    More than a text change is necessary, since it boots into the old kernel by default (3.7.10).
    The new kernel (3.11.x) is installed, but unused. I had this on both computers I upgraded from 12.3.

    My solution:
    `yast bootloader`
    Other --> Propose New Configuration

    This shows "openSUSE 13.1" on the first line, using /boot/vmlinuz as kernel, which is a symlink to 3.11.6 - bingo.

    Click on OK, reboot, done.
