I am trying to install OpenCV 3.0.0 on RPi2 with raspbian Stretch. When I run the following


and then sudo make, I get the following error:

Does anyone know how to solve this?

Solution is Simple...

  1. just go to /usr/include/c++
  2. chose whatever version you are using. In my case it was 6, So chose folder 6
  3. look for cmath.c and open it. Change #include_next <math.h> to #include <math.h>
  4. Save it and done..

If you are having error with stdlib.h then also do the same for cstdlib.c file
