So I've been working on building Mininet, there's a blocker though:
Mininet needs a dependency called openvswitch, which isn't in the repos. I have a working package for it but openvswitch needs a kernel module (named openvswitch) to properly work.
The question is: should we use the out-of-tree or the in-tree module? I'm guessing having it compiled isn't really a problem, but the number of people using it will probably be so small it may be considered bloat by everyone else.
@DataDrake what do you think?
I'd much rather we use the in tree modules. If you can let me know what needs to be enabled, I'll take care of it in the next kernel update.
Claiming for kernel sake, not maintainership.
