    Dual-booting Ubuntu and Pardus with GRUB2...Pardus no show?

    Hello all,

    I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed and used to dual-boot Fedora, but I replaced Fedora with Pardus.

    After the install, I went into ubuntu, and did a sudo update-grub. It detected my Pardus 2011 install there. When I rebooted, it did not show up in my grub2 menu however. I went back to Ubuntu and did it again...then checked the grub.cfg, and it is not there. I have read that Pardus uses a grub legacy.

    How can I get Pardus into my grub2 menu?

    Want to be sure I'm clear on your problem.
    When you run update-grub, the Pardus entrie is echoed to the screen but when you look at grub.cfg it is not there ?

    If yes that sounds like you have a old grub2 installed and it needs updated, though the package manager. Do not know why the latest Ubuntu whould be using a grub2 that does not work correctly.

    Yet after this, I go to grub.cfg, and Pardus is not there.

    My grub2 also won't show pardus, except it doesn't even detect it when i sudo update-grub. Any ideas? When I installed pardus I told it to install the bootloader to its own / directory.
