you cannot just put packages from sid into a squeeze system and hope
that they install or work correctly. the way of making that work is
known as backporting (rebuilding newer packages from testing or unstable
for the kernel, maintained backports for squeeze are available at
progress-linux.org. for lightdm, i'm not aware of an existing backports,
but it's trivial to do yourself (simple rebuild should be enough).
