update-initramfs is failing on debian testing upgrade


I'm having some weird problems upgrading the debian testing installation on my T60 laptop.

apt-get install -f (where -f means "Fix; attempt to correct a system with broken dependencies in place.")

returns the following:

Code:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
2 not fully installed or removed.
After this operation, 0B of additional disk space will be used.
Setting up initramfs-tools (0.91e) ...
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-3-686

gzip: stdout: No space left on device

  Package yaird is not installed.

  Package initramfs-tools which provides linux-initramfs-tool is not configured yet.

Errors were encountered while processing:

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
I'm stuck in trying to understand what's going on.
For starters, I have no idea why it's saying no space left if

df -h

says:

Code:
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda5             4.6G  3.6G  817M  82% /

/dev/sda6             1.9G  521M  1.3G  30% /usr/local
overflow              1.0M  320K  704K  32% /tmp
Unless it has something to do with /tmp being only a meg in size? Is it really supposed to be that small?
I don't remember coming across that overflow fs before.

Another odd thing (among a few) is happening since I tried upgrading.
When I try to download a file using Iceweasel it says:

Quote:
There is not enough room on the disk to save to /tmp/filename.
This is despite the fact that the selected place to save downloaded files is ~/Desktop.

Another odd thing is that I can no longer play video. For example nothing on Youtube works anymore.

Any ideas would be appreciated here.
