I would like to get rid of the BIOS-like text that is displayed in between the OpenSUSE Boot Menu and Boot Splash. In the YaST Boot Loader settings I’ve found that the option to hide the boot menu actually lengthens the time this text is displayed. Best I’ve done so far is set the Boot Menu to appear for 1 second. I would like no text to appear if possible.
The boot up text I’m referring to starts with “root (0,1)…”
Also when the screen switches from the Boot Splash to the Desktop I sometimes get a no signal detected. I don’t think this happened when I initially installed 11.3 LXDE. Is there a fix for this?
I don’t have a fix for you , but check out this script. It is possible to go directly into one of your grub selections from a reboot. Save this as a text file in the folder /usr/local/bin as root and call it pbs:
# P.B.S. - Partition Boot Selector - Version 1.1
# by J. McDaniel for use with Grub Legacy
# Reboot from CLI to selective partitions as told by oldcpu
# Written for openSUSE Forums on 8-22-2010
if "$HOME" != "/root" ] ; then
echo "Root User Permissions are required, Please Enter the ..."
tput setf 7
tput setb 2
echo "P.B.S. - Partition Boot Selector Version 1.1 - for Grub Legacy"
tput setf 7
tput setb 1
echo "Reboot from CLI to selective partitions - Your Choices Are...."
tput setaf 2
read -p "Please type a single digit option # & press <enter>..(q=Quit): " CHOICE
if "$CHOICE" != "q" ] ; then
shutdown -r now
# End of Script File
In kde, you could start kwrite as root:
kdesu kwrite /usr/local/bin/pbs
Then, after you save the file, open a terminal session and run run the terminal command:
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/pbs
Then to use the program, open a terminal session and enter:
This is writing something specific to the /boot/grub/default file you might simulate, though the file is reset after each usage. It is something to look at though.

Set the timeout to zero.
