Wow... no need to re-install :-), just be sure about the steps you're
doing. Whether in doubt, launch aptitude and try from there, it usually
provides insightful information when having to deal with
different/mixed sources.

Thanks again for your help, Camaleón!

I now was able to install the backports kernel, nvidia-glx and add
wheezy alsa.
The packages which I need for building xbmc are most from squeeze, some
from backports and some from wheezy.
I was just trying to install each package from squeeze. If it didn't
work I went for backports but most of them can't be found there so I
went for wheezy.

Glad you finally got it working without reinstalling.

Btw what's the difference between linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.1-686-pae and
linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.2-686-pae and why are both in the backports
repos. I was looking at but couldn't find any
explenation. Is there a place where I could find more infos?

AFAICT, the last number in ".bpo.1"/".bpo.2" indicates a revision. A
higher number means is the latest one.

More info:

5.6.12 Version
