I tried building OpenCV on CentOS 6 but it's pretty hard to configure so I was starting to think of an alternative server os to run it on. What would you recommend?

Just a small remark. In the future, try using the tags without the hashtags supplied. It creates tons of doubles and makes effective searching through this forum quite hard. Thank you in advance!

Red Hat based OS gave me problems to set up OpenCV. i use Ubuntu 12.04 and it runs excellently. Try any Debian based Linux eg-Ubuntu

I was using PythonCV APIs in Ubuntu, but I run into an error which I wasn't able to solve. The error was on polyline function.

I then switched to Fedora 19. Insofar, everything works for my PythonCV experiments. Although I have to do "cv2.namedWindow('WorkAroundTheCoreDump')" at the beginning of my Python main model if I am going to use cv2 named window. Without it, imshow() and namedWindow() will cause a core dump. I am guessing this may have something to do Fedora's stricter security.

I am interested to hearing your experience.

I guess it is kind of difficult to help you if the python error isn't even in your remark :)
