Hi,
After compilation of OVS, you can run the following commands (Commands are taken from INSTALL.Linux as described by Ben Pfaf). Go to ovsdb directory first. In OVS1.1.2, you can found it in openvswitch/utilities. 

a) create configuration database% mkdir -p /usr/local/etc/openvswitch% ./ovsdb-tool create /usr/local/etc/openvswitch/conf.db ../vswitchd/vswitch.ovsschema
b) start configuration database of OVS% ./ovsdb-server /usr/local/etc/openvswitch/conf.db --remote=punix:/ovs/var/run/openvswitch/db.sock --remote=db:Open_vSwitch,manager_options --pidfile --detach
% cd ../utilities/% ./ovs-vsctl --no-wait initc) start OVS demon% cd ../vswitchd/% ./ovs-vswitchd unix:/ovs/var/run/openvswitch/db.sock
d) setup bridges and other OVS features% ovs-vsctl add-br br0% ovs-vsctl add-port br0 eth0% ovs-vsctl add-port br0 eth1d) connect to controller
After that you can connect to controller by using following command% ./ovs-vsctl set-controller br0 tcp:10.3.70.116:6633

The documentation shows how to set it up.  I don't see any value in

feeding all of it to you one line at a time.  Start with INSTALL.Linux.
