I have enabled -proposed, of course:

ptecza at horus:~$ grep proposed /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://pl.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid-proposed main 
restricted universe multiverse

Because I can't see binary 2.6.26-10.20 packages to download, I'm 
building my own now. I'll let you know when I finish builing and
testing the new kernel.

BTW, I've noticed problem with permissions to /dev/null file under 

ptecza at horus:~$ ls -l /dev/null
crw------- 1 root root 1, 3 2008-11-14 10:25 /dev/null

So when I try to ssh to horus server, then I can see a lot of
"-bash: /dev/null: Permission denied" lines:

ptecza at anahaim:~$ ssh horus
ptecza at horus's password:
Linux horus 2.6.27-8-generic #1 SMP Thu Nov 6 17:33:54 UTC 2008 i686

I think it can be useful information for you.
