I know, for example that 1.98~20100126-1 still works. Usually a purge followed by a re-install will work as a substitute of a direct downgrade. Some packages (e.g. DMBSes) may leave traces behind even after a purge, so this route is not a guaranteed success. Of course, if anything depends on the package you are trying to downgrade, just preforming the purge can become tricky. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. email@example.com ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
