It isn't. I said nothing about subscribing, only that the answer was
there. Subscribing now would not get you the answer, since that was
some time ago. You asked for the answer on this mailing list, which had
that question asked and answered a couple of weeks ago. You are also a
member of this list already, but obviously did not pay attention to that
answer. Your penalty is to search in the archives, either this one to
find the link to the Factory list where the answer came from the SUSE
programmer that made it, or to search there. No subscription necessary.

Like I said, it is all about choice. It was programmed to be random
(default config), showing up more often during Christmas time. It will
become more seldom on its own. I read the previous thread here and
turned mine on all the time for my home machines (I think it is a great
piece of work). I could have disabled it entirely.

You edit gfxboot.cfg, for your case, replacing -1 with 0.
