[ovs-discuss] having trouble while trying to install OVS-2.3.1 in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bit

I ran the command sequence as:

sudo mkdir /work
cd /work
wget http://openvswitch.org/releases/openvswitch-2.3.1.tar.gz
tar zxf openvswitch-2.3.1.tar.gz
cd openvswitch-2.3.1
./configure --with-linux=/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build
make install
sudo make modules_install
sudo /sbin/modprobe openvswitch

cd /
sudo rm -rf /work

After that the disc image was used to load into other nodes.

and then from one of the nodes i was going to try the following sequence:

#ovsdb-tool create /usr/local/etc/openvswitch/conf.db
# ovsdb-server --remote=punix:/usr/local/var/run/openvswitch/db.sock \
--remote=db:Open_vSwitch,Open_vSwitch,manager_options \ --pidfile --detach

ovs-vsctl --no-wait init
sudo ovs-vswitchd --pidfile --detach --log-file
sudo ovs-vsctl add-br OVSbr1
sudo ovs-vsctl add-br OVSbr2
sudo ifconfig eth2 0
sudo ifconfig eth3 0
sudo ovs-vsctl add-port OVSbr1 eth2
sudo ovs-vsctl add-port OVSbr2 eth3
sudo ovs-vsctl show

but on giving the very first command in the sequence it throws an error
like the one showed in the screenshot attached.

It seems the file openvswitch-2.3.1 is not present inside /users/peertest/

how is this even possible? anywhere wrong in the sequence?
