    'opkg install python-opencv' says, Unknown package 'python-opencv'.


      AIM: Should run a Opencv application (Python code) on Galileo. So, I need to install python-opencv

      What I did:


      1. Downloaded IoT Download - Board Boot Image, IoT devkit & followed instructions found on Appendix I

      2. Found Galileo's IP over my network and can SSH into it.
      3. Added src iot-devkit-i586 http://iotdk.intel.com/repos/1.1/iotdk/i586, src mraa-upm http://iotdk.intel.com/repos/1.1/intelgalactic to iot-devkit.conf and updated my opkg then upgraded it.

      4. And finally, opkg install python-opencv returned the following errors.

      Unknown package 'python-opencv'.

      Collected errors:

      * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package python-opencv.


      root@quark00cacb:~# opkg list | grep python-opencv

      root@quark00cacb:~# opkg list-installed | grep python-opencv

      returned nothing!  What might be the problem?


      Also, I've downloaded the above package manually onto Galileo using wget and tried installing it using opkg with no success.

      I've searched online about the same, performed a few unzip operations, but failed with the error shown below.
