Re: Downgrade ...

i seem to recall someone saying on this list that it's not possible to
downgrade, but that doesn't sound right to me.

change unstable to testing in /etc/apt/sources.list (or sid to woody),
do a "dselect update".   then do an "apt-get dist-upgrade".

apt will print out what it thinks you want it to do.

if you don't like what you see, you can always back off by changing
testing back to unstable in sources.list and redo "dselect update".

note: "dselect update" implies "apt-get update", but not the other way
