Which Linux distro is recommended for software development?

+1 vote
I am currently setting up a Linux environment for developing software for the Jevois platform. Is there any particular Linux distribution that would smooth the process of developing C++ algorithms and deploying it onto a Jevois camera? Also are there any IDE/plugins that are recommended?

The best Linux environment to develop for JeVois is Ubuntu 16.10 (amd64 is what we use, 32 bit version may work just as well). Do not install the OpenCV packages that come with Ubuntu. You will compile OpenCV from source or download a pre-compiled image of it as part of the installation of the JeVois development kit.

No IDE at this stage, we just use plain emacs to edit the source code and scripts are provided to automate compilation.

What about 16.04, will it work?

Imho you guys should also support LTS...
Yes, 16.04 should work just as well. We will compile an easy sdk image for 16.04 in the next couple of weeks.
Can I use the current sdk image for 16.04?
