I would like to cross compile openCV programs for
beagleboard. My Beagleboard is loaded with Angstrom OS and my host
machine runs Linux Mint 10 (OS like ubuntu). My doubt is what tools
should I install on my host to do this?
Go to the angstrom website and read the news articles.
You can install OpenCV directly on Beagleboard itself.
Like Jyothi mentioned. Also you can install task-native-sdk for the
beagleboard tool chain to build your openCV apps. Chances
are your apps aren't very large anyway.
