I am new to openSUSE (but not to Linux). I dual boot with Windows and I want grub to wait and **not **to automatically boot.
In Arch for example I did that by changing the GRUB timeout to -1, but I simply can’t do that in the configuration (it makes it 0 automatically).
I tried it there on my netbook. If you change YAST to 0 if just starts the default selection straight away. The way I could get it to work as you wanted was to manually edit the following file using your editor of choice.
Change the time out value to -1 as you said before. Final line should look like this:
Then you need to run the following as root:
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
I don’t know if this will last if Grub gets updated but it is working at the moment for me. I guess there are some things YAST can’t do…
Meh, I hoped it could of been done without forcefully configuring it. Is there any way to modify YaST so it will be able to accept (-1)?
Is there any place to suggest such a thing? Like I said, I’m new to openSUSE and I wonder where could you actively participate and make suggestions/commits , if it is possible at all.

Set it to a ridiculous large value for the moment and log a bug that
yast does not allow to set -1.
Or modify the grub2 configuration manually.

The place is bugzilla, but don’t raise your hopes a lot. Yast is getting
behind, bitrotting, as one developer said. There are few developers on
it. Yast has its own language (ycp) which means that any contributor has
to learn the language first.
There is a project to translate and move yast to ruby, which would make
contribution easier. I have no idea when this will actually happen (I
just heard of it this week).
Hello, how long does it usually take the developers to find a solution for such an issue? I believe this can be fixed very easily (I could be wrong though). Even if not, how do I know if people are working on a solution? If someone saw my bug report?
This is a bit irrelevant to this specific thread but I am asking for general knowledge and understanding of the development and bug fixing process. Thank you.
