I have BeagleBoard RevC3 with Ubuntu and i am woking on a topic which
is real-time face recognition via WebCam (Logitech QuickCAM Pro 9000).
Technically speaking, BB will detect faces seperately via WebCam and
capture only images of these faces (portrait format) seperately
I've decided to use OpenCV. I've read some blogs and articles and a HP
robotics wiki page but they commonly used Ângström.
What should i do to use OpenCV on BeagleBoard especially with Ubuntu
Could you please give me any suggestion or reference to install OpenCV
The opencv package in ubuntu is called "libcv-dev"
Please tell me you at-least tried?
If you want to compile from source to get the latest version. You just need to follow the install instructions if you are using Ubuntu. There are no surprises - it works fine.
Of course, i googled it. However, i couldn’t understand that should i cross-compile OpenCV for ARM or CMake already does it?
If i caused any misunderstanding, i will operate OpenCV on my ubuntu distributed BB and i am new to embedded systems. So i need assitance, not prejudiced approximation.
Thank you for your answer, anyway.

You can do either or (really doesn't matter if it's ubuntu/Angstrom)....
The ubuntu version of the library is already packaged, and you could
just build natively on the beagle. Or you can cross compile the lib
and your application and any other combinations..

My point, there's been atleast 2-3 students doing an OpenCV project
every semester for the last couple years.
Thanks Robert, that will help.

I build on the beagle - it takes 4 hours but is simpler than building the cross compile chain. I had a lot of problems trying to do that.
