Re: How To Downgrade XFree86 From 4.2.1 to 4.1.0 ?


On second thought, I'm not so sure downgrading X will solve your problem.  See 
my next message.

You *might* be able to do this by running something similar to the following:

COLUMNS=200 dpkg -l | grep '4.2.1-15.backports.org.1' \
  |  awk '{print $2"=4.1.0-16woody1"}' | xargs echo apt-get install

I suggest you first make sure you understand what that does, and then run it 
once with the "echo" in there to see what will be done, and then remove the 
"echo" to actually do it if it makes sense.

Cheers, (and good luck)
