How to downgrade wheezy

Thu Aug 29, 2013 6:02 pm

Hi,
I installed wheezy earlier...
Setup my rpi and everything was working as expected.
I also had the FM transmitter working.
However, I wanted to try some text-to-speech thing and i issued following two commands for that.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

The result was that my FM Transmitter ( P*** ) is _not_ working any more..

How can I downgrade the wheezy to get back my original state ?

Here is the log of what did these commands did:

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=apt-get+downgrade+package suggests several ways.
But TBH I can't see any reason why the package updates you list would stop your FM transmitter (which is something I've not tried myself) from working :?

The latest raspbian also kills the motion app for some reason. I can't stream with it...
