Installing OpenCV on Debian Testing

Here are the instructions to install OpenCV 2.4.9 on Debian Testing (7.x)

Message for new users

If you are a new Debian user, try installing OpenCV from repositories. As root:

aptitude install libopencv-dev

Reasons to install OpenCV manually

  • Debian does not pack the non-free OpenCV module
  • Sometimes you want to compile extra features such as OpenCL, Qt, or Intel TBB
  • You should know that this solution does not follow the DFSG


Step 0: Check "natural" dependencies on Debian

Debian GNU-Linux on 8-core UltraSPARC T2 Processor

First of all, you got to boot from de CD-ROM. You got to deal with ILOM
> set /HOST/bootmode script="setenv auto-boot? false"
Set 'script' to 'setenv auto-boot? false'

-> set /HOST send_break_action=break
Set 'send_break_action' to 'break'

-> start /SP/console
Are you sure you want to start /SP/console (y/n)? y
Serial console started.  To stop, type #.
Once you reach the OK menu:
{0} ok boot cdrom
From that point, you install Debian as usual 🙂

We are running Debian GNU/Linux on a Sun SPARC Enterprise T5120 Server. The machine is powered by 8-core UltraSPARC T2 Processor. The machine supports 64 hardware threads. Lisandro helped me in this project.
Take a look at the output of htop command. We got a visualization problem 😉
