  "Installer has crashed".  Sept 13 build of Lubuntu 12.10 with special
  postinst file in place.

Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Attempted a full disk install of Lubuntu 12.10 (Sept 13 2012 build)
  from Live CD.   A test was being conducted at the time of a post
  install yaboot file replacing /usr/lib/ubiquity/yaboot-install/yaboot-
  install. I had renamed the existing file in that directory, and
  replaced it with one provided by ojordan.

  The original problem, reported as bug 1043066 was a failure of the
  bootloader with a bootable external USB drive (Mac OS X) plugged in.
  That problem went away when I unplugged the external USB drive and re-

  substituted the yaboot-install with the revised postinst file (renamed
  it to yaboot-install, and attempted installation from the live disk.
  All looked normal until near the end of the install, but then the
  installer crashed.

  eMac G4 (1.25 Ghz) - 4 gig RAM - 80 Gig hard drive.
