View Full Version : [xubuntu] Downgrading xserver-org without breaking the Desktop ?

January 15th, 2010, 01:26 AM
Hi guys,

Was wondering if anyone knows whether it's possible to downgrade xserver-xorg from the version used in Intrepid (7.4) to the Hardy one (7.3)

This is because I need to use the legacy nvidia-glx-71 driver which isn't compatible with xserver-xorg 7.4, as per


When I tried forcing the version of xserver-xorg in Synaptic, it wanted to take out most of the system including Xfce.

Is there a way to downgrade a package and automatically have all it's dependents also downgraded ?

Many thanks,
