Open vSwitch on NetBSD¶
On NetBSD, you might want to install requirements from pkgsrc. In that case, you need at least the following packages.
Some components have additional requirements. Refer to Open vSwitch on Linux, FreeBSD and NetBSD for more information.
Assuming you are running NetBSD/amd64 6.1.2, you can download and install pre-built binary packages as the following:
$ PKG_PATH=http://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/pkgsrc/packages/NetBSD/amd64/7.0.2/All/ $ export PKG_PATH $ pkg_add automake libtool-base gmake python27 py27-six py27-xml \ pkg_alternatives
You might get some warnings about minor version mismatch. These can be safely ignored.
/usr/bin/make is not GNU make. GNU make is installed as
/usr/pkg/bin/gmake by the above mentioned
As all executables installed with pkgsrc are placed in
directory, it might be a good idea to add it to your PATH. Or install ovs by
