    Default yast2 bootmanager issues

    i am having issues with using SUSE 13.1 as the OS that manages grub, in yaST2 it says it has installed but when i try to boot i just get a blinking Xterm like cursor and the system doesn't respond to input. i have never had this issue before when mint owned the bootloader, and i have never seen this with CentOS or arch either, which is why im at a loss. i have verified that the boot flag was moved to SUSE, SUSE is a primary partition, and the BIOS has sda as the boot device. here is the output of fdisk -l:

    Try this, if you are using KDE.


    Go to the KDE menu orb,

    menu => System =>Terminal => Terminal - Super User Mode.

    When asked, enter root pw

    Then, do:
    Code:
    grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
    Next, do:
    Code:
    grub2-install /dev/sda
    See if that works.

    guess i left out something important, its DE is MATE, so give gnome terms please.
    the output from grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
    Code:
    Generating grub.cfg ...Found theme: /boot/grub2/themes/openSUSE/theme.txt
    Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.11.6-4-desktop
    Found initrd image: /boot/initrd-3.11.6-4-desktop
      No volume groups found
    Found Antergos on /dev/sda1
    Found elementary OS Luna (0.2) on /dev/sda2
    done
    so it does find the OS'es
    and the output from grub2-install /dev/sda is
    Code:
    Installation finished. No error reported.
    so i will try a reboot, but i takes me a while to get booted from the supergrub disk if GRUB is still broken.

    so, why did YaST2 blow up then?

    It didn't.

    In some cases -- I don't recall which, at my age memory likes to play tricks -- it creates the Grub, but doesn't write it to the device first time out.

    I believe it does so on redoing it, but -- as I say -- my memory ...

    At any rate, this was a shortcut to make sure it was performing both steps.

    Oh.

    ... and welcome to the forums!

    I hope you enjoy openSUSE as much as I do!

    that actually makes sense.
    its not trying to boot from that non-existing mint install anymore and now its reading SUSE's install.
    plus SUSE was a clone over from another drive too.
    thanks for the help!

    thanks, i got a bad taste in my mouth after an LTS of Debian had no sound caused by a bug that wasn't caught and with what Ubuntu is doing (unity pulling 1gb memory) and CentOS is no longer supporting chrome, i needed something new and arch is nice and all, but still lacks support in a lot of aspects.
