Downgrading the kernel without breaking my system

Hello,
A few months ago, I was using a old (2011) version of the kernel, because of regressions in WiFi support and in sound quality. But when /lib became a symlink and the glibc update came ( http://www.archlinux.org/news/the-lib-d … a-symlink/ ), my system was broken, and I had to upgrade to a more recent version of the kernel using a LiveCD.

So, is there a way to downgrade safely to an older version of the kernel without breaking my system?

Thanks in advance.

/lib is a symlink... what happens if you try to install the older kernel?

Alternatively, re-build the package of an older kernel. (Though I doubt re-building is necessary, I offer it as a possibility.)

That doesn’t answer your question, but you can also try the linux-lts package.
