Hi,

I have a dual boot machine with Gentoo on first partition and Ubuntu on second one. The GRUB used to work fine with both OS till Ubuntu 18.04LTS did some major overhaul and rewrote the GRUB menu with Ubuntu as default OS.

On Gentoo OS, I have os-prober installed and tried running following commend:

Code:
pLaptop ~ # grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
Generating grub configuration file ...
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-4.19.97-gentoo
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-4.19.97-gentoo.old
  WARNING: Failed to connect to lvmetad. Falling back to device scanning.
done

And now Ubuntu is gone from GRUB menu and for reasons not clear to me. Seems like Gentoo is not identifying the other OS, so curious if there are any easy ways to restore Ubuntu to GRUB menu.

Any pointers?
