os-prober

leave a comment »

At some point recently, update-grub stopped finding my Windows XP partition. After some searching, I found that the script responsible for detecting other OSes (/etc/grub.d/30_os-prober) makes a call to os-prober and then processes the output. I’m not sure why, but this package was not installed on my system. Installing it solved the problem.
