openvswitch – now trying on ubuntu

by on December 5, 2012

On RHEL I just could not make the bloody thing work.

Once the package is downloaded (http://openvswitch.org), one had to follow so many sites to find the right patch for this.

I followed this guy  http://n40lab.wordpress.com/2012/09/19/installing-openvswitch-in-centos-6-3/ 
and some from here – http://openvswitch.org/pipermail/discuss/2012-October/008301.html
and the patch from here – http://openvswitch.org/pipermail/dev/2012-July/018906.html

and eventually I manage to compile the openvswitch.

BUT – creating a bridge using the ovs commands gave me naught.

I wrote a few scripts that create and remove bridges. the “regular” bridge work fine, but the ovs bridge do not work.

So, now I move to ubuntu.

first time with this Linux distribution, and so far, so good.

following the instruction here – http://networkstatic.net/how-to-build-an-sdn-lab-without-needing-openflow-hardware

and I do hope to success.
