Ah, that makes sense.  OK, can you put in a custom mirror?  I don't know 
because I've never tried.  If so, look at  
You can give any date for the past several years and find old modules 
that way.  I haven't actually used it but read about it here when people 
were having ALSA problems.  I looked at the site and you can either go 
by date or release.  Each date has its own set of sources.list entries 
that you would add.  You could go back to 2008-08-01 for example.  
Again, I've only looked, not actually used it.
