According to the OpenCV wiki [1], I should be able to use OpenCV from Python by running `import cv'. However, when I attempt to do that, I get "ImportError: No module named cv". From what I can see, opencv 2.0.0-1 installs the Python bindings under "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/opencv" (and are probably the old bindings described on [2]). The opencv2 AUR package [3] I had been using until now installed a single file, /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/, and worked fine.

Additional info:
* package version(s): opencv 2.0.0-1, python 2.6.4-1

This task depends upon

I used the configure method to build this package and this is wrong.
I am updating the package built using cmake; this add more depends too.
Thanks to report it.
