Re-assigning to os-prober, although the solution will be probably

** Changed in: os-prober (Ubuntu)

  Startup image names unclear, PowerPC yaboot issue

Status in “os-prober” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Affects Ubuntu precise, Lubuntu precise.
  PowerPC startup issue.

  at boot: 
  choices are:
  Linux    old     Ubuntu-Linux
  choice names are wrong, swapped (Ubuntu-Linux boots into Lubuntu)

  Following entire disk install of Lubuntu precise-desktop.powerpc.iso
  20120308, entire disk, I installed Ubuntu precise-desktop.powerpc.iso
  20120308, along side Lubuntu, resized partitions.

  On restart, at the boot: prompt, I hit the TAB key, and my login
  options were:

  Linux   old   Ubuntu-Linux

  To make a long story short, "Linux" boots into Ubuntu and "Ubuntu-
  Linux"  boots into Lubuntu.

  Both Ubuntu and Lubuntu run after log in. There are some other bugs
  related to screen anomalies, but I'll report those separately.

  I wouldn't rush to fix the naming, especially since the Ubuntu precise PPC resizing works.
  But, and I've filed a separate bug report, Lubuntu precise resizing install doesn't work from the desktop iso. Haven't tried the alternate iso.
