Been using opensuse and trying to follow the instructions in the Instant OpenCV starter.

I have downloaded the file opencv2.4.5.tar.gz extracted this.

I went into the new folder opencv2.4.5 and created a file 'build'

Then I opened cmake-gui and set the

Where to build the source code: /home/nigel/Drone/opencv-2.4.5

Where to build the binaries: /home/nigel/Drone/opencv-2.4.5/build

I get the following files appear in the main gui window in red:

CMAKE_CONFIGURATION_TYPES                Debug;Release
CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX                     /usr/local

lower gui window:

Missing variable is:
CMake Error: Could not find cmake module file:/home/nigel/Drone/opencv-2.4.5/build/CMakeFiles/
CMake Error: CMAKE_C_COMPILER not set, after EnableLanguage
Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

Help appreciated

Did you install build essential (compiler, make)? Did you create a file 'build' or a directory 'build'? It must be a directory.

Hi Vladislav,

Thanks for the reply, make is installed, cmake is installed, build is a directory (my mistake)
