Hi there,

just want to get rid of my frustration. I have to hold back myself not to type f* words. For weeks...WEEKS I've been trying to install opencv on my Windows machine. Well at the beginning I was full of enthuiasm. Go for it!

I must admit that I was using cmake the first time. Also c++ is kind of new to me. Anyway, that lesson was fun and easy to go through.

But playing with opencv is somehow "special". Be aware that compilation might fail because.... - some of the modules just come along with syntax or code errors. Ups, I must have forgot to set the ; at the end of the line - Each version has it's own dependencies, variations. Don't try to install opencv 3.4.1 with cuda 9.2. for instance. You will end up in compiling hell. BUT everybody knows that opencv needs cuda 9.1...come on....that experience you have to take. The information about installing opencv is mixed...scrambeled...bottom...up. - No, no way to get it running.

I don't care anymore. I will have to find a way to get rid of this sh*. Using cuda engine and write my own code for special needs only. Thank you for wasting my time with false promises.

Keep on going to create good stuff like this.

maybe c++ is just "not your cup of beer" ?

Also compiling a large library as OpenCV isn't a beginner's thing. I would suggest to use the prebuilt library, learn it, and compile it yourself only if you need certain specific features or optimizatoons.

Before learning something you should learn how to find help and how to ask a question
