Hello Stefaan, thanks for your reply.

Can you specify which packages you downgraded exactly? I only managed to
find a copy of xserver-common and xserver-xorg-core but installing them
didn't seem to be enough as all I got was a blank screen I could not get
out of (no ctrl+alt+f1/2/3/4).

I found snapshot.debian.net but it seems its last update was on 2008 or
am I looking in the wrong place?
