You're right. The checks for a number of possible locations
instead of checking variables. But this dirty way worked in Hoary and
it is easier for me than patching Paragon's installer.

Ah me fool, very good idea of you. Here it is:
Oct 15 16:54:33 localhost kernel: [4295330.818000] ufsd: no version
for "struct_module" found: kernel tainted.
Oct 15 16:54:33 localhost kernel: [4295330.818000] ufsd: version magic
'2.6.12 386 gcc-4.0' should be '2.6.12-9-386 386 gcc-3.4'
