Thanks for your quick reply!
Indeed in the menu.lst file are these linues:
##YaST - generic_mbr
##YaST - activate
I think these settings (timeout and default) doesn’t work by powerfail
or unexpected shutdown, I always have to press a key, if I wait, I think
that I should wait until the sun goes out…
If I reboot the machine normally (in KDE) it waits for 6 (seconds?) and
boots the correct (first/default) option!
I’m searching for an option to change for booting after powerfail or
unexpected shutdown… (like- if recordfail- by ubuntu in the
/etc/grub.d/00_header file …
Anyway thanks for your reply.
That’s grub2…your still running legacy?
So what you describe is a BIOS setting (Sx settings), is the BIOS set to
halt on all errors, or just keyboard.
What system board are you running?
The other thing is (since it’s remote[how remote? next room, across
town…]), your sure it’s not sitting at a prompt wanting to do a file
system check on a bad shutdown etc. If it is truly remote, then you
should consider a UPS for a controlled shutdown to ensure files(ystem)
won’t be corrupted.
