To whom it may concern.

I have 3 dependencies on my machine that I wish not to remove
ED2k-gtk-gui is for my Edonkey download
Kaffeince... is for my Media player
Libstdc++6 is for my develop software..

I do install an update without getting ride of my dependencies...thanks

error message....
linux:/home/suse2166 # apt-get -f install
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Correcting dependencies... Done
The following packages will be REMOVED:
ed2k-gtk-gui kaffeine libstdc++6-static-devel
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 3 removed and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B of archives.
After unpacking 11.2MB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]

thanks

To put a package on hold:
echo <pkgname> hold | dpkg --set-selections
or use the = key on the package in dselect.

You can use
echo <pkgname> install | dpkg --set-selections
to remove the hold, or you can
apt-get install <pkgname>
to explicitly install the package.

Since you haven't mentioned what you're using, so I'll assume you're using Debian Stable (aka Woody). The package for Stable is libxine0.
