[ovs-discuss] Fedora 27 Update Clobbers my Previous From-Source OpenvSwitch Install

When I successfully build openvswitch 2.5.4 on Fedora 27 server, Fedora then detects openvswitch and wants to apply a security update 2.8.1-1.fc27 to the 2.5.4 ovs. This update clobbers my openvswitch database and even after rebuilding db fresh, switches do not come up on reboot.

For now I am using a band-aid because I've not yet had time to code up an after-this-update fix.
