Re: First post
- Great article. I had not seen it before. It looks like Panorama
Factory might be my best choice for stitching very large multi-row
panos, although if Hugin also supports > 3G and takes advantage of
multiple processors on Linux, I may have to create a dual boot system
and give it a try. I don't look forward to spending a lot of time
figuring out how to install and configure Linux though. I wonder if
it is it worth it.

can wait a few weeks, you don't need linux.
that said, with ubuntu it is a breeze. there is not much to configure
other than run the gui installer from the CD.
hugin is part of the distribution, so also here not much to configure.
the simplest way to get it is to start a terminal window and type the
following three lines ($ is the command line prompt, type only what is
$ sudo apt-get install libpano
$ sudo apt-get install enblend
$ sudo apt-get install hugin
the first line gets you the panotools library.
the second line gest you enblend.
the third one installs hugin and you should see it right in your menu.
even installing and compiling from source is not that difficult:
1. get hugin from the repository:
$ svn co https://hugin.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/hugin hugin
$ cd hugin/hugin/trunk
2. configure - ccmake does it all automatically, so all you have to do
is press c to configure and g to save the configuration.
$ ccmake .
3. build. might take some time:
5. if the application starts, install
$ sudo make install
