XF86 4.4 -- reinstall down to 4.3

I have no luck getting drivers for my ati card for tv input with x 4.4 but have always had drivers under 4.3. When I installed lfs,blfs I installed 4.4 without thinking about it and now want to put 4.3 on.

I have ALOT of programs already on the system and everything and dont really want to reinstall lfs/blfs as it takes so much time (20 hours).

Is there a way to just remove 4.4 and reinstall from source 4.3 without destroying any or most of the applications already installed?

No one has been able to tell me if there are drivers for tv in for 4.4 for the ATI 7500 card, and searching the net for hours and hours has turned up nothing, so this is all I could think of.
