my btsx 0.4.9 wallet compiled fine on ubuntu 14.04. but, i only got it working on the testnet...
i'm sure it's just a small tweak away from being fully functional on my Ubuntu VM.
debian 7.6 fought me for 2 days before i gave up. getting the correct version and setting PATHs of cmake, boost and a couple of other dep's proved to be just beyond my linux skill level.
i ended up doing the unthinkable, and just slapped it onto my win8.1 box, just to have something that worked with minimal effort.
