Xtrabackup on Debian 7

Has anyone got the latest xtrabackup working on Debian Wheezy?
I had to use Debian 7 due to my hardware…and at this point I have been unable to it working as it does on Squeeze.

I will post some more specific errors later on today, but I wanted to know if anyone else had done it first.

Thanks in advance,
