It looks like your root partition is full. Since the kernel and all
of its modules need to install there, this is problematic. You can
use a tool like 'du -x' to find out where space is being used. Keep
in mind that space can be taken up by files which aren't visible; if
you have (sda3)/tmp/big-huge-file, you won't see it because /dev/sda7
is mounted on /tmp. You might try shutting down to single-user mode
and unmounting everything besides your root directory if you're having
trouble finding what's taking up space.
