That explains, why I don't see my ext4 partiton :/ So it seems, that I 
have to build my own *.deb from the current (or newer sources with ext4 
support) to use this on 10.04 and 12.04.

Are there debs out there containing newer versions of libstatgrab? I 
tried to build my own with checkinstall but when building my own package 
that depends on libstatgrab it fails because evidently checkinstall 
doesn't generate a shlibs-file which is essential for my package build 
process through debuild.

Best Regards,
