Summary: No grub gui to enter disk encryption password
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 13.1
Version: Final
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: openSUSE 13.1
Status: NEW
Severity: Minor
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Bootloader

After upgrading from opensuse 12.3 to opensuse 13.1 the bootloader grub disk
decryption password interface has no gui anymore.
The user is directed to a shell interface to enter the password to unlock the

12.3 did have this gui directly after the kernel selection screen.
For unknown reasons it does not appear to be installed during an upgrade from
12.3 to 13.1.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install opensuse 12.3 with gui (opensuse branded) bootloader grub/grub2
2. upgrade from opensuse 12.3 to 13.1
3. bootloader gui is partly gone: missing gui screen to enter password
Actual Results:
shell screen (text only including system information) to enter password

Expected Results:
Graphical screen to enter password during bootloader process.

I tend to call it a normal bug: users choosing to use a gui as bootloader are
not capable to understand a shell/text only interface including unwanted and
irrelevant technical system information. Marked bug as minor. Somebody probably
did not have time to create the gui screen for the branded bootloader?
