Setting up alsa-driver-linuxant ( ...
Building modules for the 2.6.35-22-generic kernel, please wait... done.
ERROR: Build failed. Please review the build log at /tmp/alsa-driver-linuxant.3139.log
dpkg: error processing alsa-driver-linuxant (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

The mentioned package was installed from a .deb file with no problems.

This happens whenever I install anything via apt-get. The bug itself is harmless and incredibly annoying. How do I get rid of it?

Can you post the log file here so that we can get an idea of what the problem is rather than the symptom? – iambryan Apr 24 '11 at 15:29

Uninstall alsa-driver-linuxant, since you clearly don't need it.

This happens whenever I install anything via apt-get sounds like it affects more than only alsa-driver-linuxant. – Daniel Beck Apr 24 '11 at 15:37
Yes, but this should definitely fix it, if you uninstall it completely. – Robin Green Apr 24 '11 at 15:39
