    error on community Grub2 page

    In reference to the following page

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2

    and following part

    "30_os-prober This file with os-prober, which searches for Linux and other operating systems."

    I don't know what this should be. Should it be "This file is created by the program(?) os-prober, which searches for Linux and other operating systems" ?

    Please either change this or let me know what I should change it to.

    Thanks!

    Since english is not my native language I may be getting this wrong but it seems that the quoted phrase implies that os-prober actually writes the 30_os-prober script, which to my understanding, is a mistake.
    I don't know if it would be necessary to add that it searches for other linux distros as (again to my understanding) Ubuntu's kernels are added via 10_linux script.

    Well, it has just been changed.

    So many posts because of a trivial bit of terminology.......

    True. I think that it's important to correct ambiguously written documents that are not antiquated and are read by a lot of others. But I can see your point if it is that efforts might be more useful if directed elsewhere.
