    I'm not completely sure what you are wanting to change. However, I'll
    try a guess. If I misunderstood, then maybe you will be able to give
    more detail.

    Yast --> System --> Boot Loader

    Assuming that you are using either grub2 or grub2-efi, there will be a
    place on the screen labeled "Distributor". The first word of that
    "Distributor" field is the name that grub2 uses in its menu. Change
    that and save the result.

    Alternatively, you can edit "/etc/default/grub" and edit the line
    beginning "GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=". If you do it this way, you also need to
    regenerate the config file with

    Code:
    --------------------
    # grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
    --------------------

    Re: Grub


    If trying to change the names of the various boot options in Grub2, one
    way to do this is using “'grub-customizer'
    (http://software.opensuse.org/package/grub-customizer)”.

    Wrt the Grub2 entry orders and labels, I recently used
    “'grub-customizer'
    (http://software.opensuse.org/package/grub-customizer)” to name the
    Grub2 entries on the PC of my 89+ year old mother - such that she could
    better understand them. It also allowed me to place the Grub2 entries
    into the order that I wanted my mother to see.

    I do not understand your problem.

    If it is only the 'text' label you are trying to change, then as I noted
    earlier, this can be done with 'grub customizer'
    (http://software.opensuse.org/package/grub-customizer).
    ..

    That's very likely a side effect of using the public instance of SUSE
    Studio - it's a service provided for free, so there are some branding
    elements you cannot change.

    It seems reasonable to give credit to the openSUSE project for a respin,
    which is what it seems you're trying to build.

    If you want more flexibility, use Kiwi or purchase the SUSE Studio Onsite
    product; both of those options give you full customizability.

  14. Re: Grub


    If you install another distro which uses GRUB2, you would have to make
    the adjustments in that distro, since you're booting openSUSE from that
    distro.

    Kiwi is an image building system that runs on your local system. You
    will want to read about it - seach for 'opensuse kiwi' to get started.

    It's not a simple process - certainly not as simple as SUSE Studio - and
    requires some command-line skills to use.

    Is there another way to do it.

    Creating a script to edit the files you always want to shut down or
    reboot the system.

    The way I suggested is probably your best bet - otherwise, you're looking
    for a way to circumvent something that SUSE put in place on their free
    service.

    Asking users of their service to display that they used SUSE's free
    service isn't a huge ask. For those who don't want it, there are other
    ways to achieve the same goal, but they require more work.
