I have two linux distributions installed on my PC, linux Mint and Debian, both having separate boot partitions and both are installed on
luks encrypted volumes. Debian was installed first, then I installed Mint. Debian was not detected by grub at Mint installation. Running
update-grub on Mint also does not detect Debian. What should I do for grub to detect both distros?
My partition structure is as follows:
sda |---- sda1 (windows boot [ntfs]) |---- sda2 (windows [ntfs]) |---- sda3 (extended) |---- sda5 (debian boot [ext4]) mounted at /media/... |---- sda6 (debian root [crypt-luks]) mounted at /media/... |---- sda7 (mint boot [ext4]) mounted at /boot |---- sda8 (mint root [crypt-luks]) mounted at /
My mint installation is running, and partitions are mounted as described above.
/dev/sda1:Windows 10 (loader):Windows:chain

Both found linux images are mint images.
