Generally, downgrading is not supported by individual packages.  Trying
to downgrade the whole distro might be a tall order.  I did once on a
machine a long time ago.  Much of your success will depend on your
particular combination of packages.  It is hard to be any more precise
though as there are far too many variables to consider.
