I'm aware that 12.10 will be shipped with GRUB version 2 but I'm still using GRUB 1.99 as shown in the above screenshot.
This is Asus F3F Laptop, Intel Core Duo T2350 @1.86GHz, 512MB RAM, Graphics is Intel 945GM/GMS and it is a multi-boot system with Lubuntu 12.04 as the main OS.
I was very surprised after I did the installation of Lubuntu 12.10 and updated GRUB from the main system that I have on that machine which is Lubuntu 12.04. Yes, GRUB 1.99 for Lubuntu 12.04 is installed in the MBR.
Why there are 3 entries instead of 2?
If I'm not mistaken:
Ubuntu' --class ubuntu --class gun-linux --class gnu --class os ....etc
Ubuntu, with Linux 3.5.0-15-generic' --class ubuntu --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os ....etc
Ubuntu, with Linux 3.5.0-15-generic (recovery mode )' --class ubuntu --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os ....etc
When I choose the first two in red, I guess I get the same result. But again, why there are two? are they different or the same?
Why the entries have very long names? is that a bug? some sort of compatibility issue between GRUB 1.99 and GRUB 2.0? what is going on?
I have not installed GRUB 2.0 to the MBR yet and not planing to do so as of now.
