    I was reading a how-to about recovering deleted files
    http://www.linux.com/base/ldp/howto/Ext2fs-Undeletion.html
    the first step in the recovery process is to find out the deleted inodes.
    I want to try it on my machine, so I first deleted some irrelevant files on my root partition and then ran debugfs, opened my root partition device node read-only, but the "lsdel" command gave me nothing.
    does that mean nowadays the ext3 filesystem no longer keeps recently deleted inodes around?

    No. But unfortunately I have no solution for your problem. :(
