I read an interesting response to something I said about grub2 in
another place - in other words I got 'raked over the coals' :-) - which
said that Ubuntu follows upstream convention and does NOT use the term
grub2 but uses grub.

I therefore can assume that this use of grub2 is in openSUSE only?

Mageia and Mandriva do as openSUSE. There could be other distros doing the same.

e.g.
ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/linux/mirrors/mandriva/devel/cooker/i586/media/main/release/grub-0.97-37-mdv2012.0.i586.rpm
ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/linux/mirrors/mandriva/devel/cooker/i586/media/main/release/grub2-2.00-1-mdv2012.0.i586.rpm

Thanks for this, Felix.

So, Ubuntu may be the one which is "out of step", so to speak, just in other ways: for example, I learnt that it does not activate a firewall as a default but requires one to manually and delibarately activate and configure it. How primitive.
