  [regression] Fedora17 and ArchLinux dont appear in GRUB menu

Status in “os-prober” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “os-prober” package in Debian:

Bug description:
  The os-prober of Ubuntu 12.04 (and 12.10) does not detect Fedora when
  Fedora's partition is unmounted (which is frequent). Consequence:
  Fedora does not appear in Ubuntu's GRUB menu.

  WORKAROUND: mount the Fedora partition before doing update-grub in

  Bug confirmed by several French users with Fedora17 and Ubuntu12.04
