I using apt in terminal to install an update.
When i used
apt-get -f install it showed
0 upgraded, 7 newly installed, 428 to remove and 3 not upgraded. 4 not fully installed or removed. Need to get 5691kB of archives. After this operation, 451MB disk space will be freed. Do you want to continue [Y/n]?
I dont want to remove 428 packages. These are linked with other applications. (Some packages are Ruby1.8, Perl, python libraries and so on). How should i install the 7 packages without removing 428 packages.
