I've os-prober installed.

I have finally seen OBSD in the boot menu, due to manually editting

menuentry "OpenBSD 4.6" {

set root=(hd0,1)
chainloader +1

Still doesn't boot, but I've still a bone to pick with OBSD. :-)

How to make that persistent across grub upgrades ...

Doesn't work, sorry. Been there, done that. Still researching ...

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
