I recently installed GoboLinux on a multi-multi-distro computer. The PC was already set up with Grub2, but that installation (fedora) didn’t recognize GoboLinux, just listing it as an unknown Linux distribution. How insulting.
I know that GoboLinux can set up Grub so that it’s recognized and all, but I wanted other distros to give it proper respect. I found that if I drop a file called os-release in /System/Settings (aka /etc in the unenlightened spheres) the managing version of Grub will find it and list GoboLinux in the Grub menu.
Haven’t been able to figure out how to point it toward GoboLinux icons yet, other than pasting them into the alien partition myself.
Any suggestions for improvements are appreciated.
I put this in the os-release file:
NAME=GoboLinux VERSION=017 ID=gobolinux VERSION_ID=017 PRETTY_NAME="GoboLinux 017" ANSI_COLOR="1;34" HOME_URL="https://www.gobolinux.org/" DOCUMENTATION_URL="https://gobolinux.org/documentation.html" SUPPORT_URL="https://gobolinux.org/community.html"
