When I try to run sudo apt-cache showpkg sqlite3, I only get the version 3.4.2. I need later than that to compile the sqlite3-ruby gem, and I can't make from source files (even with a ./configure --prefix=/usr/bin, then a make, then a sudo make install.

Is there a guide or a way to manually apt-get remove sqlite3 and compile the latest source (, as found here for Ubuntu) so I can get sqlite3 -version up above 3.4.2?!

I've been hunting all around the web, to no avail.

There is an untrusted PPA here with version 3.5.9 of SQLite.

Note - as all PPAs - they are not from canonical so I cant vouch for their authenticity.

However his stable PPA comment is

"To give you a bit of confidence in this PPA, I'd like to point out that I'm an official Debian Maintainer with upload rights to the Debian distribution itself."
