With apt-get install openvswitch-datapath-dkms in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, I got "Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.13.0-32-generic (x86_64)".

In the /var/lib/dkms/openvswitch/2.0.2/build/make.log: KMS make.log for openvswitch-2.0.2 for kernel 3.13.0-32-generic (x86_64) checking for Linux source directory... /lib/modules/3.13.0-32-generic/build checking for kernel version... 3.13.11 configure: error: Linux kernel in /lib/modules/3.13.0-32-generic/build is version 3.13.11, but version newer than 3.12.x is not supported

The installation of openvswitch-datapath-dkms shows not supporting kernel after 3.12.x. But, the ICEHOUSE is supposed to support Ubuntu 14.04 which has linux kernel 3.13 How is this issue solved?

I just saw the note: Ubuntu installations using Linux kernel version 3.11 or newer do not require the openvswitch-datapath-dkms package. I then removed the openvswitch-datapath-dkms package.

I experienced the same issue while trying to fix issue with FreeBSD exlplained (here) and (here). While upgrading kernel, I deleted this package and the problem solved.
