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:
Reading package lists... Done

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

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
