I revert back using --oldpackage option in rpm. Of course it can help
in case that you have few modifications and you have taken note of any
particular package installed during upgrade in case you have to remove
during downgrade...In the particular case of X server upgrade, it
means about 12 packages to be ready to be downgraded.Not very
difficult....
