I have updated the installation instructions, including help for the recent IPP 7.0.
In one of the tests I have installed the whole system (except the CUDA package for SIFT) in a cheap netbook with Ubuntu 10.10. The applications obviously run slower, but I am surprised to find that most of them are perfectly usable. I can use it for class demos.
The built-in camera works without any problem, and two more USB webcams are supported. The following screenshot shows an application working with three live views. Synchronization is really bad, but in static scenes we can try out many interesting multiview experiments.
