Hi, I have openSUSE 11.2 and boot using GRUB. I was looking on start-up options for 11.2 and saw where it said
I was wondering what they meant?

I have opensuse 11.2 on my laptop and it was fine until yesterday. I disconnected the USB keyboard, mouse, power, ethernet cable and the extra USB hard drive. Took the laptop to the other room, connected to a different ethernet network.
i love both ubuntu and openSUSE, So i tried to install them in one machine. in first attempt
i first installed openSUSE 12.2 and then installed ubuntu 12.04 alongside it in another partition. after this, i lose openSUSE boot splash.
i thought it is because ubuntu 12.04 uses grub 1.99 and openSUSE 12.2 uses grub 2 so in second attempt i installed again both of them.
I've formatted my USB and remade the live USB twice. I tried editing editing the commands (pressing the 'e' key while the command was highlighted on the GRUB menu) by 1. deleting quiet splash and replacing it with nomodeset 2. adding nomodeset right before quiet splash 3.
I installed the nvidia driver from the official repository for openSUSE 11.3 and now everything works perfectly, except i get a verbose splash screen after the grub menu.
It has worked after i upgraded from 11.2. In my menu.lst it already says splash=silent.
I have run ubuntu on my macbook pro 9, 2 for almost a year now. I have to use proprietary driver, so plymouth doesn't work and the screen is very ugly on bootup. I decided that instead of watching the broken plymouth splash screen on boot, I would rather just boot verbosely every time. I opened /etc/default/grub and got rid of quiet splash, updated grub, and rebooted.
Due to lack of concentration, I inadvertantly ran PClinux(2009-2)'s "install.sh" while I was in openSuse 11.1. This file says:
grub --device-map=/boot/grub/device.map --batch <<EOF
setup --stage2=/boot/grub/stage2 (hd0,6)
