Thread: GRUB Entries

  1. #1

    Default GRUB Entries

    I have a triple boot setup Windows, openSUSE 11.4 and another linux distro.

    After I installed openSUSE, GRUB listed openSUSE and Windows but did not list the other linuxdistro. How do I get it to list all of the OS's available? Other distros have utilities such ad REDO member or others that will pick up all distros and OSs. Is there such a thing here?

    linux-6vn7:/home/rick2210 # updategrub
    If 'updategrub' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
    cnf updategrub
    linux-6vn7:/home/rick2210 # cnf updategrub
    updategrub: command not found
    linux-6vn7:/home/rick2210 #

    sda6 is the linux partition not detected by grub
    sda7 is /home
    sda8 is the openSUSE install

    There is a 'Boot Loader' on the menu that executes /etc/lib/bootloader/bootloader_entry

    You need to add and refresh my repo first, then you can install updategrub from YaST.
    One way to add the repo is to do it in a terminal by typing (or pasting) the following:

    Code:
    su -l
    zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/please_try_again/openSUSE_11.4/ PTA
    zypper refresh PTA
    But once you are in the terminal, you can just add one command to install the script:

    Code:
    zypper in updategrub

    What do you mean by "... add and refresh my repo first ..."? What is "my repo"?

    What does "updategrub" do differently than "'Boot Loader" from the Menu
