Downgrade Xorg due to legacy driver?

Postby Shufu on Tue Jul 22, 2014 2:01 pm

Hello, after updating from up6 to up8 i can no longer boot into the desktop environment. I'm using an old machine with the hd3200 and hd3450 video cards. I was using the catalyst legacy 13.1 driver fine before, but I couldn't reinstall it after the update as it only supports kernel versions up to 3.4. I used smxi to install the liquorix 3.4.0 kernel and was able to successfully install the driver this time, however I still can't start X. Apparently the driver only supports Xorg verisons up to 1.12. I currently have Xorg version 1.14 so I guess i have to downgrade Xorg to 1.12 or lower, which I don't know how to do. Please help me :(
