Thanks for shutting the **** up if you don't have the solution.
If you want to retrieve a particular version of a package that is no
longer in stable, unstable or testing, look at:
To find and obtain what versions are of a particular package are
available, you need to find the source package name for the package you
For example, I was looking for available versions of the linux kernel in
the 2.6 series. The source package name is "linux-2.6" and so I put
the following in /etc/apt/sources.list and ran aptitude -u
deb http://snapshot.debian.net/archive pool linux-2.6
deb-src http://snapshot.debian.net/archive pool linux-2.6
As always, if something breaks with an upgrade, use reportbug to see if
the bug has been found and work-arounds are available, or failing that
to report the bug to the maintainer.
