Re: Mouse disappeared after update to squeeze 6.0.1

What is the easiest way to downgrade the kernel as a work around for this problem?

debtop:/home/steven# apt-get install linux-image-2.6.32-5-686=2.6.32-30
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree      
Reading state information... Done
E: Version '2.6.32-30' for 'linux-image-2.6.32-5-686' was not found

Do I need to build from source at kernel.org or can I use apt?

Looks as if downgrading the kernel (as you did) is a workaround for the time
being. You do have an intel card, don't you?
