Re: how to put packages on hold -- permanently

Did you consider using aptitude as your main package manager?? It will solve 
these problems easily. I just hold packages that I need to be hold and 
aptitude works great. 

I dont understand why so many people today use pure apt-get for everyday 
package management.
