Good afternoon,

I new in openflow world and openvswitch.

I have some questions about building and install openvswitch, and using commands.

First for example, the command ovs-vswitched flow_table, i guess don't work because appear this messages in console:

reconnect|INFO|flow-table: connecting
reconnect|WARN|flow-table: connection attempt failed (Address family not supported)

Other example is the command ovs-dpctl dump-flows br0, the error message is ovs-dctl: opening datapath (No such device)... 

If you can help me, I'll be grateful

The way that I installed openvswitch was: 
tar xvfz openvswitch-1.7.3.tar.gz
cd openvswitch-1.7.3
Make Install
mkdir -p /usr/local/etc/openvswitch
ovsdb-tool create /usr/local/etc/openvswitch/conf.db vswitchd/vswitch.ovsschema
ovsdb-server --remote=punix:/usr/local/var/run/openvswitch/db.sock \
--remote=db:Open_vSwitch,manager_options \
--private-key=db:SSL,private_key \
--certificate=db:SSL,certificate \
--bootstrap-ca-cert=db:SSL,ca_cert \
--pidfile --detach &
ovs-vswitchd --pidfile –detach
ovs-vsctl add-br br0
ovs-vsctl set bridge br0 datapath_type=netdev
