Follow-up Comment #9, bug #40106 (project grub):

Thanks, I appreciate your admonition, and having looked at the os-prober code,
I agree they are fighting a losing battle to include all GNU/Linux
distributions. (Except through /etc/lsb-release which is what our project will
add to our baselayout.)

But my question still stands, if I run grub-mkconfig from Debian, how come
that 'SolusOS 2' is picked up automarically for some menuentries, but not for
others? If at least you understand that will put my mind at ease for reporting
this. From some source you are picking up this name, and it's not from
os-prober. Where does it come from??

Thanks again for your time and attention. :-)
