Bug#586370: os-prober: Misdetected Fedora 13 install in /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Package: os-prober
Version: 1.38
Severity: normal


I have installed Fedora 13 on an external USB 1TByte harddisk and wanted to integrate it into grub2 on my notebook.

Unfortunately, I can't start F13 from grub2 boot-menue.
I get an error on UUID "e87da235-0c58-4e83-a8c8-aab9bf994285".

I have attached the /boot/grub/grub.cfg from my debian/sid system.
Also, the /boot/grub/menu.lst and /boot/grub/device.map from the F13 system.
FYI: Fedora uses still a patched grub-legacy ("grub1") as default.

The funny thing is:
Installing F13's grub1 to USB-hdd's MBR gives a "geom error" back.
Might be a "distro flamewar feature" :-).

Kind Regards,
