Re: how to downgrade
But sid should be able to run GNOME 2 just fine right? I was told GNOME
2 comes with Sid. I just want GNOME 2, so running woody or sid doesn't
I tried following the steps for "downgrading" but it only tried to
update what I already have. I guess you're right... downgrading didn't
work for any of the packages for me.

It's worth noting that downgrading packages is explicitly not supported
by Debian. It will likely work for 90% of the packages out there, but
if it breaks, please don't file bugs.
If you're running sid, and you want to go back to woody, your best bet
is to reinstall your system.
