Yes, actually, you were. What you suggested he do with synaptic (not a KDE
package) results in a "dpkg" hold.
But in any case, nothing you quoted below would give another reader a clue
what you're talking about.
The previous poster suggested using KPackage to "hold" a package. Donn said
he couldn't find that option. _IF_, as you suggested, he really meant
kpackagekit, I agree with Donn - there is no such option. If he really did
mean kpackage, there should be (at least there was last time I looked).
