    Default wrong bootloader after upgrading to opensuse13.1

    I've got a problem after an upgrade from openSUSE 12.3 to openSUSE 13.1 with kde desktop
    the two screen shut shows that I have two old boot loader 12.2 and 12.3 after Previous upgrade but not 13.1 which is the last upgrade installed, another error is that I do not have any wedget, there is a red cross "unable to load the widget "

    Sorry, you have to try explain yourself better. I don't see your computer, so you have to explain in
    words.

    I'm not sure what the question is.

    Try
    Code:
    uname -a
    Does it show you as using the 13.1 kernel? For me the output shows the kernel as "3.11.6-4-desktop". If you are getting the correct kernel, then you are booting properly.

    When I use Yast bootloader, I do not see that "Section management" tab.

    My best guess is that you are using grub2. But, because you upgraded (instead of a fresh install), there are still traces of legacy grub left behind and Yast is looking at those in the "Section management" tab.

    In particular, your screen shows the content of "/boot/grub/menu.lst". If you are using "grub2", then your actual boot menu will be "/boot/grub2/grub.cfg", and that is maintained differently. It is updated by running
    Code:
    # grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
    If you want to make changes, you are supposed to make them either in "/etc/default/grub" or in the various scripts that are found in "/etc/grub.d".

    hi nrickert I can not interpret the result, so here is the result. is that kernel 13.1.
    Code:
    uname -a
    
    Linux linux-vush 3.7.10-1.16-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri May 31 20:21:23 UTC 2013 (97c14ba) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    my grub it grub, should I change it to grub2
    Code:
    grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
    
    grub2-mkconfig: command not found

    That's the kernel from 12.3.

    So something when wrong with your upgrade attempt. It's hard to say what, with the little evidence available to me.

    What method did you use to upgrade?

    Why did you buy it? The official DVD is the one you download from the opensuse web site for free!
    Who knows what that DVD you bought has.

    Do you have a separate "/boot" partition? If so, is it full (with insufficient space to add the 13.1 kernel)? Or is your root partition full?

    now I'm confused, I've tried this command to show that I have 13.1 installed, with everything else shows that it is still 12.3 which boot loader
    Code:
    cat /etc/SuSE-release
    
    openSUSE 13.1 (x86_64)
    VERSION = 13.1
    CODENAME = Bottle
    # /etc/SuSE-release is deprecated and will be removed in the future, use /etc/os-release instead
    nrickert
    How will I know if my partitions is fulle, is is there an easy way

    If you are using grub, then you just need to edit the applicable entries in /boot/grub/menu.lst, changing '12.3' to '13.1'.
