Unless I press the F2 key, the boot messages are hidden behind a
picture called "openSuSE Artwork Team". Is it possible to have the
boot messages shown immediately without pressing the F2 key?

Try removing "quiet" from the bootloader's kernel cmdline. You
might want to try "splash=0" or "splash=verbose" as well.

Following your hint, I modified the grub configuration file:

cd /boot/grub2
mv grub.cfg grub.cfg.bak
sed -e 's, splash=silent quiet , splash=verbose ,' grub.cfg.bak >

That helped. Thank you very much!

it will not last for long, as I fear. Have a look at:


At least when you add splash=verbose to the boot parameters using yast, it lasts for ever. It worked for me as long as I remember over many updates and kernel changes and it still works under 13.2 and leap.
