How do I add Opensuse to Grub2 menu in a triple boot setup


My triple boot setup consists of Fedora 18, Windows 7 and Opensuse 12.3 on 3 separate hard drives.

HD1: Windows 7 - sda
HD2: Fedora 18 - sdb
HD3: Opensuse 12.3 - sdc

I have installed Opensuse on sdc and the bootloader into /. I have rebooted my system after installation and only have Windows 7 and Fedora in the Grub2 menu, I would like to add Opensuse to menu.

Can someone maybe walk me through how this can be done or point me to a tutorial that can help me do this?

Thank you in advance.

I have reinstalled Opensuse after not getting a response here or the #suse, #fedora, #grub irc channels and have installed the bootloader but opensuse is not showing up in the grub menu.

Grub contains scripts and tools which automatically detect new operating systems and update your GRUB menu as needed. The commands grub2-mkconfig (search up the man pages for more information) run scripts in a diretory which ultimately update your grub.cfg file.

I read somewhere and ran 'grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg' after hours of searching. All 3 operating systems now show up in Grub2.
