After following step by step the installation guyide, i am at chap.6 Openstack Networking.. having done all the steps, i try to start openVSwitch service.

What i get is the following:

 stack-network:~ # service openvswitch-switch force-reload-kmod FATAL: Module openvswitch not found. Inserting openvswitch module failed Module has probably not been built for this kernel. Install the openvswitch-datapath-source package, then read /usr/share/doc/openvswitch-datapath-source/README.Debian Detected internal interfaces: done Saving flows done 2014-11-28T09:58:35Z|00001|daemon|WARN|/var/run/openvswitch/ovs-vswitchd.pid: open: No such file or directory ovs-appctl: cannot read pidfile "/var/run/openvswitch/ovs-vswitchd.pid" (No such file or directory) Killing ovsdb-server (29143) done Starting ovsdb-server done Configuring Open vSwitch system IDs done ovs-vswitchd is not running done Saving interface configuration done 2014-11-28T09:58:35Z|00001|dpif_linux|ERR|Generic Netlink family 'ovs_datapath' does not exist.

"Module has probably not been built for this kernel." - looks like you don't have the right version for that kernel.

Install the openvswitch-datapath-source package, then read /usr/share/doc/openvswitch-datapath-source/README.Debian

I don't have a SLES 11 image handy - poke around and learn whether /proc/net/packet should exist for your kernel or not. If it should... maybe you weren't running the install as root?

Hope this helps.
