Severity: normal

The linux-distro probe looks for /lib/ld-linux* to find out when a
partition's got a Linux distribution on it. This is fine on some
architectures, but not everything calls the dynamic loader ld-linux.so.
glibc/shlib-versions says:

  # The dynamic loader also requires different names.
  i.86-.*-linux.*         ld=ld-linux.so.2
  sparc64-.*-linux.*      ld=ld-linux.so.2        GLIBC_2.2
  sparc.*-.*-linux.*      ld=ld-linux.so.2
  alpha.*-.*-linux.*      ld=ld-linux.so.2
  arm.*-.*-linux.*        ld=ld-linux.so.2
  sh.*-.*-linux.*         ld=ld-linux.so.2        GLIBC_2.2
  ia64-.*-linux.*         ld=ld-linux-ia64.so.2   GLIBC_2.2
  mips.*-.*-linux.*       ld=ld.so.1              GLIBC_2.0 GLIBC_2.2
  hppa.*-.*-.*            ld=ld.so.1              GLIBC_2.2
  s390x-.*-linux.*        ld=ld64.so.1            GLIBC_2.2
  powerpc64.*-.*-linux.*  ld=ld64.so.1            GLIBC_2.3
  cris-.*-linux.*         ld=ld.so.1              GLIBC_2.2
  x86_64-.*-linux.*       ld=ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 GLIBC_2.2.5
  # We use the ELF ABI standard name for the default.
  .*-.*-.*                ld=ld.so.1

I don't have any better ideas apart from maybe looking for the kernel
instead, which is harder.
