Hi all.  I'm having a problem with os-prober not finding other linux
partitions.

I'm on x86_64 and an old spinning drive with an msdos partition table
and 4 primary partitions, 3 linux and 1 swap.

os-prober runs successfully as per bash's return code, but no partitions
are found.

grub (grub2) is built with the 'mount' use flag, and when 'grub-mkconfig
-o /boot/grub/grub.cfg' is run, the result is the same, i.e., the gentoo
partition is found but no others.

Any suggestions on where to check from here?
