I can't seem to install opencv 2.4.9 on centos 6.5 with cuda 5.5 support. this is my cmake output:

I've been beating on the same setup for a few days without complete success also. I've gotten past the basic cmake issues, but now hit c++ compile/syntax errors (I'm presuming there's a particular version of gcc/g++ that might work with 2.4.9, though I've tried several to so far and each one has different compile issues. I've also tried backing up to 2.4.8 and 2.4.7, though not with all version of compiler yet (Hmm, I should write a script to hit a big matrix of gcc/g++ vs opencv versions). Hmm, I see you are using gcc 4.4.7, which I abondoned since it had many syntax/c++ compiler errors, and have moved up to gcc 4.8.?, which get compile more of the code but not all. Then gcc 4.9+ can't be used ...(more)

Let me try to help. In order to make sure your CUDA is recognized by OpenCV, you need to make sure the following stuff is done correctly:

  • Is the CUDA path added to your PATH? In your bashrc you should have something like PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/cuda-6.0/bin"
  • Do you have a ld config for your CUDA? This can be done with sudo gedit /etc/ and then adding the following in that file /usr/local/cuda-6.0/lib64 offcourse adapting it to your needs and running sudo ldconfig after it to reload.

Now OpenCV should recognize your CUDA installation, atleast it does here on Ubuntu.

Thanks for your input.

*CUDA is in the $PATH. It is shown in the original post.

*I didnt have an ldconfig file for CUDA. i created it and the results are the same.

*Apparently, OpenCV cannot be used under CentOS.

Any other ideas?

Maybe this topic can point you in the correct direction?
