When I run either
sudo update-grub or
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg, it proceeds as normal, but when I check
/boot/grub/grub.cfg, the file is the same as before even though I have installed new OSes!
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /home/gabriel/Desktop/test.txt, and examined the file. It says that the owner is root, and only has read permissions. Furthermore, it's the old version of my GRUB setup, and doesn't reflect my recent install of Windows 8.
Are there any permissions that are incorrectly set or something? This is very vexing.
/dev/sda1:Windows 8 (loader):Windows:chain
/dev/sda12:unknown Linux distribution:Linux:linux
/dev/sda5:Windows Recovery Environment (loader):Windows1:chain
/dev/sda6:Windows 7 (loader):Windows2:chain
/dev/sda8:Fedora release 17 (Beefy Miracle):Fedora:linux
Note: "unknown Linux distribution" is ChromiumOS.
This is the output of
