How to revert back after upgrading from testing[SOLVED]

Any ideas? I want to revert all my upgrades from testing...Will I do it manually on every package?

Thanks in advance

Remove the [testing] repo from your pacman.conf.  Then do a "pacman -Syu" and note the packages that are flagged as newer than in the repos.  Reinstall those.

Am I going to install them manually?  Pacman will not install them for me?

Pacman will not automatically downgrade your packages.  There is not too much in [testing] at the moment so it should be fairly easy just to downgrade them manually.

Or if you use yaourt, "yaourt -Su --downgrade"

Re: How to revert back after upgrading from testing[SOLVED]

A while ago I saw a bash script for this that would parse the output of pacman and then downgrade any packages that it said was newer than the repos.

Hmmm...

Probably what yaourt -Su --downgrade does.
