Hi, I found that the OpenCV-2.4.3.exe file is quite huge, if I unzip it, it will takes larger then 3G Bytes. So, I just extract the pre-build libs for mingw (x86) and the include folder.

Now, here comes a question: I use the dependency walkers to check the files under: OpenCV-2.4.3.exe\opencv\build\x86\mingw\bin\, it looks like those dlls was depend on some dlls like: LIBGCC_S_DW2-1.DLL and LIBSTDC++-6.DLL. So, where does those dlls come from. I mean: which mingw compiler suite was used to build the mingw libs.

Currently, there are a lot of mingw suites in the world, TDM-GCC 4.6.x? official-mingw 4.6.x or official-mingw-4.7.x? Some compilers were DW2 and others were SJLJ exception module.

I can't find any documents about this, thanks.(also, I would like to see the build log(options passed to the gcc)

Here is my test app code:

#include <stdio.h>
#include "opencv2/core/core.hpp"
#include "opencv2/imgproc/types_c.h"

using namespace cv;

int main()
    printf("Hello world!\n");
    Mat x = Mat(4, 4, CV_32S);

    return 0;

Also, the bt of the crash:

    Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Hi, Alexander Shishkov, thank you for the answer. (though my reply is a bit late, but still thanks for the clarification) Now, I see there are 2.4.4 opencv release. So do they use the same mingw compiler suite as 2.4.3? I mean: For x64, you use mingw-w64 gcc 4.6.3 ( I guess dw2 version, but I haven't tried) For x86, you use mingw from official mingw site, gcc 4.6.1 dw2 version.

Am I right?

Btw: I strongly suggest that you need to tell the user what the gcc suite to build those prebuild libraries. I think those information should be put in a text like "readme.txt" Thanks.

Thanks for the comment. Yes, we used the same versions of MinGW compilers. It is interesting suggestion, we would try to add information about compilers version to our releases in the near future.
