The only package I downgraded was tetex-base. I discovered that
tetex-base was upgraded to 2007-9 when tex started telling me it
couldn't find "article.sty". :) Once I downgraded it, I was able to
to install lmodern. I suppose the fact that you could install
tetex-base 2007-9 w/o also pulling in texlive or some other useful
pacakge is another bug.

In 1997 a group of programmers started writing a desktop environment
to fix a travesty they didn't create. Their program promptly found
its way onto un*x systems everywhere. Today, still opposed by a
software monopolist, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you share
their vision, if you know you can help, and if you can connect to
internet, maybe you can join... the K-Team.
