Troy Dawson just informed me for SL 6.1 forward, grub will now default to 5 seconds (from Zero seconds) in deference to dual booters.

Please post here if you find that is does NOT. (RHEL is supposed to change, if not, he will) biggrin.gif

I'm one of the guys who disables the "hiddenmenu" feature.
So defaulting to 5 seconds is fine by me biggrin.gif

Me too. Troy would like it reported if anyone finds it does not default to 5 secs (rather stays at zero) ....I guess this would be the place to do that! biggrin.gif

Good aversion of the trend. We're not trying to cater to the people who are afraid of seeing any VGA mode text in their bootup, we're catering to the mature people who can handle seeing an extra dark blue screen with a 14 colour night sky on it in their bootup.

However, I can easily see how awkward defaulting to a hidden menu can be if you're not on a single-boot system. Great move.

Viper550....got a question....my SL 6.0 install is Viperized, however I noticed the words "Scientific Linux 6" look much nice on shutdown that on boot up.

Is that going to be changed? Or am I missing something that will be in final 6.1?
