Hello dear all, today I got a snapshot from git but when I try to compile it
I failed with the following information

make  all-recursive

make[2]: Entering directory `/home/yan/openvswitch/datapath'

I am sure all the package required has been installed and actually the last
snapshot I got from git can work fine. Any help will be appreciated.
