OpenCV 4

build from source according to the official documentation

curious how the python distinguish different versions of opencv, does it affect the conda environment?

build from source by specifying something, refer to Buidling OpenCV with Conda on Linux and How to install OpenCV 4 on Ubuntu

  1. 这并不意味着只安装在具体 conda envs 中,而是 /usr/local 中,最后再 ln -s 过去
  2. ln -s 时python site-packages 下的 .so 文件必须重命名为,否则找不到!!
  3. 所有其实一开始指定 cmake,只是为了针对具体版本进行编译,最后还需要自己 link,参照 Compile OpenCV with Cmake to integrate it within a Conda env 设置 BUILD_opencv_python2=OFF
