The following procedure worked for me when I downgraded from unstable to
testing about a year ago, you might want back up first :-) As I recall,
I was following advice from a post to this list. If anyone knows why
this is insane/dangerous, please speak up.
1. Add the appropriate source lines to your apt-configuration, comment
out anything else.
deb http://linux.csua.berkeley.edu/debian/ testing main non-free contrib
deb-src http://linux.csua.berkeley.edu/debian/ testing main non-free contrib
deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib non-free
2. apt-get update
3. apt-get dist-upgrade
4. Repeat step 3 until you stop getting package errors. (it took me
about 4 runs.)
