Basic problem: Spyder-Py2 2.3.3 running can't import cv (commonly known as opencv). When I attempt to "import cv" (or cv2) in a python console, the console doesn't throw an error but just becomes unresponsive. When I attempt to "import cv" in the ipython console, I get
"It seems the kernel died unexpectedly. Use 'Restart kernel' to continue using this console."
Please note this is after I have added /usr/local/Cellar/opencv/2.4.9/lib/python2.7/site-packages to PYTHONPATH using PYTHONPATH manager. If I don't do that, the error simply says the module isn't recognized.
However, in the terminal (OSX 10.9.4) I am able to import cv and use it just fine. Spyder was installed as a .dmg and opencv was installed using Homebrew. Each has been installed and reinstalled a number of times so the order of installation is probably not the problem.
I am pretty sure that terminal and Spyder are using different python sources. In the terminal, "which python" returns /usr/local/bin/python. However, by inspecting sys.version and sys.maxint, you can see both are Python 2.7.8 and 64bit.
The only difference I can find is that in the terminal I get:
[GCC 4.2.1 Compatible Apple LLVM 5.1 (clang-503.0.40)] on darwin
Whereas in spyder I get
'2.7.8 (default, Aug 15 2014, 13:43:01) \n[GCC 4.2.1 Compatible Apple Clang 3.1 (tags/Apple/clang-318.0.61)]'
when i use sys.version.
Please. Any help would be very much appreciated.
