I could not find grub customizer in YAST. Is there another way to get rid of the splash screens in booting up and shutting down?
I edit “/etc/default/grub” and the line for “GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT” by removing the string “splash=silent”.
Some people prefer to uninstall “plymouth”. But if you use that method, you must lock it (or taboo it) after uninstalling, else it will be installed again.
I tried the editing described above. No change. I installed* grub-customizer from
https://software.opensuse.org/package/grub-customizer. It would not work because it could not find the command sh: grub-MK config]( https://software.opensuse.org/package/grub-customizer)
I did not allow updates from the repo to hopefully avoid future problems with updates.
Well, YaST only knows about and shows packages that are in one of your configured repositories.
If you want to install packages not part of the distribution, you’d need to add a repo containing them first for them to show up in YaST.
Those 1-click installs at software.opensuse.org automate that process though.

Uninstall plymouth, or add “plymouth.enabled=0” to the kernel boot options.

“Bug” in the package I’d say. The command is named “grub2-mkconfig” in openSUSE…
Maybe contact the person who provides it.
There are two listed though, maybe the other one would work.
PS: Version 4.0.6 from
home:ecsos should indeed work AFAICS, the other one misses the patch to use grub2-mkconfig instead of grub-mkconfig…
I like that option. It seems the simplest. I have looked in several places in YAST (Kernel Settings, Boot Loader, and /etc/sysconfig Editor) but can find a place to make this change.
For openSUSE, use:
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
Possibly the command:
would also work.
Go into YaST->Boot Loader and switch to the “Kernel Parameter” tab, you should see a text field labelled “Optional Kernel Boot Parameter” (or similar).
Btw, I noticed I made a small typing mistake, it should be “plymouth.enable=0”…
