Going to give Debian/Jess a break for now. I have a work laptop not going to be used for several weeks which I can wipe and put anything on. What Linux flavours have been successful for compiling the various parts of HF. Initially Interface, but would also like to dabble with the server components.
I believe (k)Ubuntu has been used with success (which release version is best?)
Is Mint (preferably KDE version) an option? (again which release is best?)
