I'm trying to build opencv3 with linuxbrew with the standalone setup on ubuntu 14.04, and it seems to be failing. I've recorded the relevant gist-logs which save all of the command line commands and debug output.

To reproduce the error from scratch create a vanilla ubuntu installation (I was using a VM with vmware tools) and run the following script from ahundt/homebrew-robotics which automates the linuxbrew setup and goes through opencv3 installation (this takes quite a while because all dependencies are built from scratch):

bash <(curl -fsSL

The opencv3 install command of the above script is failing seemingly on the opencv3 python setup step. Here is the error:

hbr@homebrew-robotics:~$ brew install opencv3 --with-contrib --c++11 -v

there is an "official" way to build opencv on linux , please use that instead

@berak I can't, the dependencies that come with ubuntu by default are too old so the next library utilizing opencv and other libraries won't compile with the default ubuntu packages!
