I made the same mistake first time. I checked the

ovs-openflowd, a program that implements a simple OpenFlow switch
(without the special features provided by ovs-vswitchd) sing the same
kernel module as ovs-vswitchd.


But probably its not clear from a first time user perspective. I got the
clarity after looking at the code.
