Thank you very much.
Using this I finally managed to get the openSuse Build Service to create a running version of bitcoind for Ubuntu 10.04. Hopefully some more systems will follow, but there's always the problems with the dependencies.

Excellent improvement!  I pulled down the SVN tip and had no trouble building on my headless server.
No X11, no Wx, and RPC password support.. sweet.

Thanks!

Great job satoshi! Some of my nodes have seen >100% increase in block generation speed, not to mention it was MUCH easier to compile bitcoind.

I replaced the last of the few wxBase dependencies in bitcoind.

bitcoind now compiles without wxWidgets or wxBase in SVN rev 112.

main(int argc, char* argv[]) is added to init.cpp.  CMyApp and the Startup folder stuff are moved to ui.cpp.  ui.cpp and uibase.cpp aren't linked by bitcoind.

The makefiles have -DGUI to control whether the GUI is used.

I test compiled MinGW, VC and Ubuntu.  I don't know if I broke the Mac OSX build, someone will need to check that.

Awesome! That's really great news. I thought wxbase was to integrated with the software for this, but I'm glad I was wrong.

notice the -l boost_thread comes after a -Bstatic
it's trying to link libboost_thread statically and can't find libboost_thread.a

D'oh. Thanks.

It looks like libboostthread is missing. But:

~/dev/bitcoin/trunk$ locate libboost_thread
/usr/local/lib/libboost_thread.so
/usr/local/lib/libboost_thread.so.1.40.0

Anyone else tried building on Ubuntu? I get a weird linker error with the boost_threads library. It has nothing to do with Bitcoin per se, except that the client now uses boost threads and my boost installation is being weird. Can anyone else reproduce while I sit here feeling like an idiot?

Fantastic, thanks!

Now if only Fedora would ship elliptic curve crypto, it would build on Fedora.  (Fedora excises that due to patent encumbrace)
