"libdc1394 error: failed to initialize libdc1394" opencv c++
Posted on 2014-09-16
I am using OpenCV libraries on C++ on an Ubuntu 13.04 virtual server (Virtual Machine mounted in a VMWare ESXi 5.5).
After installing an Apache and PHP Server and after installing OpenCV carefully, I compile my code and the compilation works good, but when I run it (calling the compiled file from a remote client), it throws an error:
"libdc1394 error: failed to initialize libdc1394"
What can I do? I've been googling for a while and I have tried all I saw with no success. I have no /dev/raw1394 driver and I don't know how to get it. I don't have the more modern dev/fw0 one either... it looks like I don't have any video driver. Could it have something to do with the fact that it is a Virtual Machine?
I really don't know what else to do. I hope any of you can help me with this. Thanks a lot in advance. Any question about anything you need to know about my case is welcome.
