Can anyone tell me how I can get back to any version of a working gnome session? Gnome1.4 worked fine for me and I would not object to going back to it if someone can tell me just what needs to be downgraded, uninstalled, etc. I just want a working system.Marc Shapiro
I run testing and Gnome 1.4[and my system is in pretty good shape] and the following are the versions of relavent packages not in sync with the official archive["apt-show-versions | grep -v 'testing uptodate'" and then I manually weeded out packages I track from unstable[mplayer et al, mozilla, wine] and unavailable packages that I don't think are necessary for a working system[ie marbles, nparted...]:

Put them all in a directory and try 'dpkg -i *deb'. If that doesn't work, run dpkg-scanpackages on the directory, create a Release file with origin equal to local, pin o=local to 1001, and add the directory to your sources.list, and then bang away at aptitude.
