Because of upgrading my Linux OS from Debian Etch to Debian7 I need to be compatible and to keep same behaviour of my new compiled opencv program so I need to install previous Opencv (version 1.00.00) on the Debian7 OS

Where found this older Opencv version ? Must the dependencies for Opencv also be installed/reinstalled if the OS has already his own built-in of these dependencies?

Thank you

this sounds like a terrible idea.

if you got the src code, shouldn't you rather try to adapt that to today's opencv codebase, than to maintain something 10 years old ?

while the 1.0 code still exists , you would have to build from src, there's no other way to 'install' something like that.

again, please upgrade your code, don't downgrade the library.

Hi Berak,

Thank you answering. Indeed adapt that to today's opencv codebase is more revelant. I will upgrade my code in the future but for now as you give me the link to the previous code I will build from src. Is it a normal software install procedure (./configure -> make -> make install -> make clean) ?

Thank you

@Alias, no idea about the procedure. again, you're all alone with that.

(and, imho, you're doing the wrong thing)

@Alias yes the procedure should be the one that you mentioned. But like the others before me said, it is better to port you old C api code to the new C++ api.

Thank you very much Berak and Theodore. I will too update my code for the new C++ api
