I will contact the author and ask for some hints and maybe a debug

I will. The devicemapper is compiled into the kernel, so first I have
do some research on how to integrate it manually.

Its output is the same as dmsetup status:
# dmsetup table

I'd like to try this besides the mentioned distros as well. If you can
provide it, I'd be grateful.

This is an FS Amilo 3438G laptop, and I use it for work and leisure
as well. I'm kind of a freelance developer (Java, Rational etc.), and
currently learning Linux. I chose Debian, because I'd like to learn a
lot. So far, I did with all these install problems, kernel compiles and
other things I came across during solving this problem. I dont really
need another desktop system. :)

Thanks for help, and I'll get back to the list as soon I get further results.
