Burg on Natty works correctly via a PPA.

As with all PPAs - these must be used with care. In this case - especially so - since incorrect installation could prevent you booting. Have a good backup (for example - with clonezilla) before you install.

Just did this, yeah continue with maverick, it works fine. – Hailwood Apr 16 '11 at 9:31
@Hailwood @Papiux will the maverick ppa be supported in the future versions? – avi Apr 16 '11 at 11:33
Even if its not its no big deal to change to ppa. – Hailwood Apr 17 '11 at 5:12
Sorry about my late answer, thanks @Hailwood for that. I'm sure they'll update for Natty but no problem to use it for now. – Papiux Apr 18 '11 at 17:58
