I installed OpenCV on my older Ubuntu machine today. Now I wanted to try this library once. That's why I wanted to try the following code:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <opencv2/opencv.hpp>

using namespace cv;

int main(int argc, char** argv )
{
    if ( argc != 2 )
    {
        printf("usage: DisplayImage.out <Image_Path>\n");
        return -1;
    }

    Mat image;
    image = imread( argv[1], 1 );

    if ( !image.data )
    {
        printf("No image data \n");
        return -1;
    }
    namedWindow("Display Image", WINDOW_AUTOSIZE );
    imshow("Display Image", image);

    waitKey(0);

    return 0;
}

But he does not really work. Because I get the following error message:

FATAL ERROR:
This OpenCV build doesn't support current CPU/HW configuration
Use OPENCV_DUMP_CONFIG=1 environment variable for details

Required baseline features:
SSE - OK
SSE2 - NOT AVAILABLE

OpenCV Error: Assertion failed (Missing support for required CPU baseline features.)

Thank you for your help!

Can you share the CPU in this box? That way we can see if it has SSE2.
