kernel, udev, hal problems


I met a problem today when I was trying to 'apt-get upgrade' my testing debian. Now apt doesnt allow me to install any packages, like this:

# apt-get install wordnet-dev
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  hal: Depends: udev (>= 0.063) but 0.056-3 is to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

And when I do 'apt-get -f install', it says that:

# apt-get -f install
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Correcting dependencies... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
The following packages will be upgraded:
1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
1 not fully installed or removed.
Need to get 0B/310kB of archives.
After unpacking 270kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
(Reading database ... 123001 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace udev 0.056-3 (using .../archives/udev_0.068-2_i386.deb) ...
udev requires a kernel >= 2.6.12, upgrade aborted.
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/udev_0.068-2_i386.deb (--unpack):
 subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Does it mean that I have to upgrade the kernel? And if so, how should I do that? Because apt dont let me install any package now...

BTW, I am wondering that if the new kernel installation command should be 'apt-get install linux-image-686' on my P4 machine.

Any Clue? Thank you in advance.
