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).
