Q. I don't like the graphical GRUB splash screen provided by SUSE Linux. How do I disable graphical GRUB splash screen?
A. You can disable your graphical splash or boot screen. All you need to do is edit the grub.conf or grub.lst file located at /boot/grub/grub.conf
Open grub.conf using text editor:
# vi /boot/grub/grub.conf
Now find the line which starts with the word splashimage and comment it out or just delete it.
Save and close the file. Restart the system to check the effect.
