    That is the graphical grub menu ... grub is completely dependent upon the video bios extensions supported by your particular graphics adapter (i.e. no two are necessarily the same, and may have different native VBE capabilities)... you can try selecting a grub resolution to see if it will work ... or you can findout your adapter's supported modes several ways too via "vbetest", (from grub cmd line with) vbeinfo, or, as root
    Code:
    hwinfo --vbe | grep Mode

    Or if you can help me to install this http://kde-look.org/content/show.php...content=117310

    There are several splash screens you see while your system is starting up:
    • the bootloader's (i.e. grub's, lilo's ... )
    • the boot splash (see the list of such apps in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bootsplash)
    • the DM's splash (if you're using one)
    • the desktop's (i.e. KDE's, GNOME's ...)


    What you have shown pertains to the boot splash. In particular, it pertains to a boot splash specific to "Bootsplash"
    openSUSE, however, now uses "Plymouth" (again, see the list in the wikipedia link)
    You can likely uninstall Plymouth and then install Bootsplash and then configure it to use that particular theme you linked to if you so choose.

    I do this GRUB_GFXMODE in /etc/default/grub 1920x1080
    But how can I do: grub2-mkonfig -o /boot/grub2/boot.cfg ?
    run in terminal?
    (If 'grub2-mkonfig' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package thake this:cnf grub2-mkonfig)

    It is easier to set the grub screen res from yast - boot

    You will find yast. in the menu.

    I also need help with the Imortal Bootsplash..

    The given link advice on kdelook.org is no use. Isn't there a simple method to get read of the opensuse 13.1 bootsplash ????

    Of course not.
    That link contains a theme and advise for openSUSE 11.2.
    Much has changed since then. In particular 13.1 uses grub2 instead of grub (which was actually patched to use gfxboot on/by openSUSE), and plymouth instead of bootsplash/splashy.

    What do you want exactly?
    What does "to get read of" mean? Or do you want to get rid of it?

    Well, that's easy. Just add "plymouth.enable=0" to your boot options, or uninstall the package "plymouth" and its dependencies.
    Or just uninstall "plymouth-branding-openSUSE" to only remove the openSUSE theme and keep plymouth itself.

    You could also change "splash=silent" to "splash=verbose" in the boot options, like in earlier openSUSE versions.

    To change the bootsplash, use "plymouth-set-default", see its man page. Of course you would have to create/install a new theme first.
    Each theme is in a subfolder inside /usr/share/plymouth/themes/.
