Hey all,

I want to get a lightweight version of opencv just for training and detecting objects.

What are the minimum dependencies that the installation has to meet for the opencv apps (opencv_traincascade.exe createsamples.exe .. etc.. ) to be built? Regarding the opencv cmake configuration.

selected packages

Shouldnt these be enough?

Only dependencies for those are the core, highgui, improc, ml and objdetect lib i guess. But why you want to reduce your openCV built? Just build the apps and supply them with the correct complete prebuilt dlls afterwards in one package? Kind of missing the point of what you doing!

Thx for the reply and suggestion.

I want to reduce because I have to build opencv in diferent pcs with different specs (some are old) and I want to reduce the build time. It seems that some packages are linked because for instance the combination that you mentioned does not build the apps
