Help me to get the default menu boot screen of GRUB in SuSe

After updating OpenSuSe 11, the boot menu of GRUB got black. I know some ways to change the background to something nicer. How ever I prefer the original boot screen of the OpenSuSe 11 with green face. Please help me to change my current menu to the original one. Thank you. My English is not good enough.

You should have the file /boot/message and also a line in /boot/grub/menu.lst pointing to the message file.

In my menu.lst file the line looks like this:

gfxmenu (hd0,4)/boot/message

hd0 means hard disk 1 and 4 refers to partition 5 (in GRUB the numbers start from 0 rather than 1). If your message file is on a different hard disk or partition these numbers will be different.

Hope that helps. Here’s a link to more info about GRUB: SDB:The Boot Manager Grub - openSUSE

Open a terminal window, switch (su) to root, and do:


cat /boot/grub/menu.lst

Post the output back here.
