HELP: how to compile with the source version of apt
I am a newbie too, but maybe i can help you.
To have the sources of the packages you need to add in your source.list a line like this:
deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ testing contrib non-free main
Take a look that we are just adding a "-src" in the original line and the rest is intact.
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ testing contrib non-free main
But if I am not mistaking, to use "apt-get source" the package must be a "debian package". So maybe you will need to find the dependencies manually.
I hope it helps you.

Trying my luck here! =)
Iāve googled on how to compile from the apt source, but Iām still having a hard time getting it to run successfully. I need this compiled.. https://github.com/kyleshank/apt-s3#readme
I ran āapt-get build-dep apt-s3ā among others and I keep getting āE: You must put some āsourceā URIs in your sources.listā
But Iām not sure why Iād need to put an URI since Iām trying to compile locally, so technically I shouldnāt need any entry in the URI (source.list) file?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
