Default Bug#507271: kernel cannot be installed: subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1

Package: linux-image-2.6.26-1-686
Version: 2.6.26-10

Hi,

I'm currently running a debian testing (Lenny) with the following
kernel: linux-image-2.6.24-1-686 (2.6.24-7).
I wanted to upgrade my debian and all new packages have been
installed/configured correctly except for the 2.6.26 kernel
(linux-image-2.6.26-1-686).

When I tried to install this package, the postinst failed. See bellow
the complete stack of aptitude:
