It's been like that since 11.2.  Previous openSUSE releases (up to
11.1) would set up other OSes in Grub on install, but now it doesn't.

This was discussed on the Factory list around the time of 11.2RC2 and
raised in a bug report:
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=548993  The bug was closed
without any real satisfactory solution (in my opinion).

In my observations, openSUSE is the only Linux Distro that I install
(out of many) that fails to recognize and set up other installed OSes
correctly.  Now, we get either nothing at all in Grub for other OSes,
or a chain loading mess of multiple Grubs... unless you go in and
manually twiddle and tweak your Grub menus.


Thanks, C. I commented on that bug.
