If you're actually booted to openSUSE, or any other distro that supports both 
Grub Legacy and Grub2, regardless whether only Grub2 is installed, what you 
wrote won't work. In such cases there must be a 2 involved, such as 
/boot/grub2/grub.cfg or grub2-mkconfig, another of the reasons why I 
previously wrote what I wrote about cake.
