Hi All,

I am trying to install dpdk with ovs, but am getting the linking errors.
Downloaded and tried with dpdk 2.0/2.2/16.04 and latest ovs.

DPDK : wget http://dpdk.org/browse/dpdk/snapshot/dpdk-2.0.0.tar.gz and wget http://dpdk.org/browse/dpdk/snapshot/dpdk-2.2.0.tar.gz
OVS : git clone https://github.com/openvswitch/ovs.git

 ./configure --with-dpdk=/home/ubuntu/raja2/dpdk-2.2.0

ubuntu at 01HW462422:~/raja1/ovs$

Installed dpdk successfully, but when i build ovs with dpdk i am getting the linking error in all the three versions of dpdk.
Is there any specific version in which the dpdk-ovs will only work, if so please let me know.

Thanks,
Raja
