grub.cfg has "unknown linux" when Linux is known.


I have the following

ChapeauLinux (/dev/sdb)
KororaLinux (/dev/sdc)
Tumbleweed (/dev/sdd)
Fedora25beta (/dev/sde)

My default system boot is Chapeau Linux

I create a new grub.cfg when I have (kernel updates on /dev/sdc, sdd, sde)
I end up with Tumbleweed being called "Unknown Linux"
What keyword is Grub2-mkconfig looking for to use as the title to the grub.cfg menuentry field?

In the interrim, I copyied the /etc/fedora-release variable from Fedora25beta to Tumbleweed's /etc and also changed the contents to state "Tumbleweed (rolling release).

So, grub2-mkconfig now recognizes Tumbleweed and inserts the contents of the fake /etc/fedora-release varible into grub.cfg
