    Installing OpenSuse 11 RC1 hides Ubuntu 8.04

    Hi! Folks,

    I'm new to Linux - absolutely liked Ubuntu and just completely migrated out of Windows in my Laptop (HP DV5215). Just wanted to try OpenSuse 11 RC1 and decided to have a dual boot with Ubuntu 8.04. I installed OpenSuse few hours back; when the installer asked for Disk partition, I selected LVM Option as the Partition method asked to format the entire system. OpenSuse got installed in EXT3 (Please see attachment). After the installation I'm not able to see Ubuntu in Boot Loader and it just gets into OpenSuse.

    Can you please assist me in fixing the boot loader and enable me to access Ubuntu?? Ubuntu is my primary OS and I dont want to miss that like this.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Regards,
    Bineesh

    Then sudo grub update.

    Hi!
    Thanks very much for the quick response. Tried the method provided in the thread provided (the first method), but still I'm getting only the OpenSuse boot loader. What I actually wanted is to see both Ubuntu & Suse in the boot loader so I can select either of them. Attaching another screenshot of the LVM. Trust this helps.

    In 'find /boot/grub/stage1' you should get at least two posibilities. Try the other one.

    Hi! I'm getting only one option when I tried. Please see the attached screenshot.

    I think it comes with the Live CD: 'Partition Editor'

    Where is openSUSE supposed to be? Where is Ubuntu supposed to be? At most is one there. The rest looks like empty space. Why do you have a /boot partition? And if so, why is it at the end?
