Confused about Open vSwitch

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

Thanks for this article! I'm impressed on how far opensource has come with virtualisation with KVM/QEMU by now and openvswitch for me is the missing puzzle tile.

But I'm also a bit confused since in this article I am told to activate <*> Open vSwitch in the kernel but if I have and go on to emerge net-misc/openvswitch it tells me * CONFIG_OPENVSWITCH: should not be set.. But it is set...

So what's the right way and why are only kernels up to 4.8 supported by net-misc/openvswitch?

Thanks a lot — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Tazinblack (talkcontribs) 07:51, 22 February 2017‎
