Disable graphical GRUB splash screen

Posted on in Categories last updated July 17, 2006

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.
