Suse 8.0 <-> Suse 9.3 login screen reboot


In suse 8.0 on the X login screen it was possible to reboot the system
to a specific system i.e. the system rebooted automaticly in windows
or what ever else like other kernel.
In suse 9.3 this is gone.

It seems that this was done with a utility to create on the fly a bootimage or what ever.
Has anybody any idea how this was done (which sw?)

The real problem is to boot 2 different kernels in an embedded system
which has no keyboard nor RS232 Terminal i.e. if you have the running
system reboot the other kernel and of course without edition /etc/lilo.conf ...

Do you see the problem :-)

Any hints are pretty welcome

I assume you are not using KDE? Here you can reboot to a specified system/kernel if you add your bootloader to kdmrc.
# The boot manager KDM should use for offering boot options in the
# shutdown dialog.
# "None" - no boot manager
# "Grub" - Grub boot manager
# "Lilo" - Lilo boot manager (Linux on i386 & x86-64 only)
# Default is None
This will run the grub command
grub> savedefault --default=x --once
Maybe you can write a script that does the job.
No idea about the lilo command, however.
