I understand that your priority is most likely to get something working *now*,
but staying on an old kernel is not a long-term solution. Please, do listen to
us when we ask for *detailed, accurate* information about the kernel panic you
are getting, otherwise the kernel will likely remain broken for you. Otherwise,
you're welcome to download old kernels and play around with them, but please
take the discussion elsewhere; we're not supporting such things here.
