Most likely an update will not change the bootsplash image. Perhaps
somebody can verify and then either confirm or deny this.

Also if there is no update of the splash screen, is that a bug or a


Most likely the grub menu is only updated when the kernel package is
modified, and afaik there is no change in the kernel between RC1 and
RC2, so unless you go into YaST -> Bootloader -> Propose New
Configuration you will not see a "RC2" in the grub bootloader menu.

The real test to see what the system thinks you are running is in
/etc/SuSE-brand and /etc/SuSE-release, I think.



Yes, you are true. If you update and kernel doesn't change then there is no
reason to change titles in bootloader menu ( I try to have philosophy that if
it work before update, touch as less as possible to not break it)
Perl-Bootloader use few ways how to get currently installed product and one
way is read SuSE-release :)
