Default strange aptitude error


Im facing a problem with aptitude (running testing).

If I run:
# aptitude update
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct
the problem.
Couldnt lock Cache-File ... (translation by me)
Then download info and:
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct
the problem.

If I run
# dpkg --configure -a
Richte initramfs-tools ein (0.93.4) ...
update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)
Verarbeite Trigger für initramfs-tools ...

gzip: stdout: No space left on device
update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd.img-2.6.30-2-powerpc
dpkg: Unterprozess installiertes post-installation-Skript gab den Fehlerwert 1

No space left on device? Which device and how can I free some space?
# df -h
Dateisystem Größe Benut Verf Ben% Eingehängt auf

/dev/hda2 93M 69M 20M 78% /boot
83G 50G 30G 63% /home

I guess tmpfs is full, but how can I free some space in tmpfs?

thankful for any help
