After reading the threads about grub, I was wondering how I have to
install opensuse on my ubuntu laptop. There is a partition free, but
how about grub ?
What information do I need to be able to make an entry in suse's
menu.lst ? Or can opensuse's installer manage this by itself ?
Then again, do I need to modify my ubuntu to tell it's no longer in
control of grub ?

Hello Konrad

The Problem is, that opensuse use grub1 and ubuntu grub2.
This cause that ubuntu will find opensuse as a bootable system, but
opensuse can not handle ubuntu.
But if you want opensuse to manage the systems on your computer, then
you can setup ubuntu manually.

If i understood correctly, 12.1 _does_ have grub2, but uses by default

So i'm not sure if that means that after installation, you can switch
towards grub2. Or if you can decide during the info-gathering just
before installation, that you **might** be able to tell the installer to
use grub2 instead of grub1, and use grub2 straight away.

If i had some idle hw, i might have tested that, be all is in use..;-(


Have a look here;

It's dead simple to edit menu.lst, this explains how to add the entries
you need.
