apt-get source 的使用


以下測試是在「Xubuntu 14.04 64位元」。


「apt-get source」的使用範例,請參考『如何下載「Source Package」』這篇。


$ man apt-get


           source causes apt-get to fetch source packages. APT will examine the available packages to decide which source package to
           fetch. It will then find and download into the current directory the newest available version of that source package while
           respecting the default release, set with the option APT::Default-Release, the -t option or per package with the pkg/release
           syntax, if possible.

           Source packages are tracked separately from binary packages via deb-src lines in the sources.list(5) file. This means that
           you will need to add such a line for each repository you want to get sources from; otherwise you will probably get either
           the wrong (too old/too new) source versions or none at all.

           If the --compile option is specified then the package will be compiled to a binary .deb using dpkg-buildpackage for the
           architecture as defined by the --host-architecture option. If --download-only is specified then the source package will not
           be unpacked.

           A specific source version can be retrieved by postfixing the source name with an equals and then the version to fetch,
           similar to the mechanism used for the package files. This enables exact matching of the source package name and version,
           implicitly enabling the APT::Get::Only-Source option.

           Note that source packages are not installed and tracked in the dpkg database like binary packages; they are simply
           downloaded to the current directory, like source tarballs.
