Created attachment 516490 [details]

Description of problem:
I installed F16 Alpha TC1 on a clean harddisk. No other system in there. After installation the default grub timeout is set to 20 seconds and the menu is set to be visible.

See attached grub.cfg.

I believe:
1. The menu should be hidden, because I don't have any other operating system installed.
2. The default timeout should be less than 20 seconds, that's overkill. 10 seconds maybe?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install F16 Alpha TC1 no a clean disk
2. reboot and see grub

I downloaded and installed Fedora 16 four days ago.
The default timeout is 5 seconds, but the menu is shown with only one OS installed.
Is this the normal behavior?
In fedora 15, the menu was hidden when that was only one OS in the system.

João, create a separate bug about that, thanks.

I beat João to it, see bug #757487.
