I'm trying to configure OpenCV-2.2.0-win32-vs2010 with Cygwin to work together. Any ideas on how I can do that?

What is OpenCV, what are you trying to do with it, what didn't work (copy-paste the commands you used and the error messages)? – Gilles Feb 27 '11 at 10:48
OpenCV is "a library of programming functions for real time computer vision". – Philomath Jul 17 '11 at 17:08

Try building a cygwin port of OpenCV instead of using the windows one. Go to Cygwin ports, follow their instructions & download the "opencv" package (listed under graphics in "setup.exe"), make sure to select the "src?" checkbox. Build it. That's it.
