Bug#618665: Online-Source for linux-image-2.6.32-30?
 
Since this bug seems to affect a lot of people (looking at the number of
other bug reports on the same issue), it would be nice to make the old
kernel version linux-image-2.6.32-30 available online again. One or two
days after *.31 went 'stable' one could still acquire the old kernel
from packages.debian.org by selecting the new kernel and manually
changing the download URL, but it looks like the old version has now
been removed from the mirrors (at least each mirror I tried).

Maybe someone could make the old kernel version available somewhere (if
indeed no such page exists anymore) and post a link to where one can
still find the old version on this bug report? Thanks.

You might like <http://snapshot.debian.org/>. :)

Kind regards,

Bug#618665: Online-Source for linux-image-2.6.32-30?
 
As a time saver for whom ever, here are the steps I did to downgrade the kernel:

Edited /etc/apt/sources.list to enable a single line:
deb http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20110314T221327Z squeeze main


Then called:
apt-get update
apt-get install "linux-image-2.6.32-5-686=2.6.32-30"

Added the following apt_preferences file:
/etc/apt/preferences.d/linux-image

And added there the following lines:


Explanation: Do not install a version of the kernel which disappears the cursor.
Package: linux-image-2.6.32-5-686
Pin: version 2.6.32-31
Pin-priority: -1

Then edit /etc/apt/sources.list back to the original and update:

apt-get update
