openvswitch 1.2.1-3ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

openvswitch (1.2.1-3ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * Merge from debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
    - debian/rules, debian/contro, debian/dkms.conf.in,
      debian/openvswitch-datapath.dkms.(postinst, prerm):
      Add dkms support by providindg openvswitch-datapath-dkms.
    - Make sure we have a directory under /var/run to create the
      pidfile for openvswitch-controller, backported from upstream

openvswitch (1.2.1-3) unstable; urgency=low

  * Allow the openvswitch-switch init script to fail gracefully
    if the openvswitch_mod module can't be loaded. This avoids
    failure to install the openvswitch-switch package in the case
    where the module isn't available.

    This resolves a regression between 1.1.1 and 1.2.1.

openvswitch (1.2.1-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Install python modules into /usr/share/pyshared/ovs/
    rather than usr/share/pyshared/python-openvswitch/ovs/
    This allows them to be found using the default sys.path
    as they were able to be found befoer the dh_python2 transition
    was made.

    This resolves a problem whereby openvswitch-ipsec fails
    to start because it can't import the ovs.db module.

openvswitch (1.2.1-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream version
    - Various bug fixes
    - Remove excess files from ovsdbmonitor package
      (closes: #636816)
  * Add dependency on ${misc:Depends} to openvswitch-brcompat and ovsdbmonitor.
  * Resolve manpage warnings
  * Transition to dh_python2
  * Set -e in brcompat's postinst script so that it doesn't ignore errors

Binary packages built by this source

openvswitch-brcompat: Open vSwitch bridge compatibility support

 openvswitch-brcompat provides a way for applications that use the
 Linux bridge to gradually migrate to Open vSwitch. Programs that
 ordinarily control the Linux bridge module, such as "brctl", instead
 control the Open vSwitch kernel-based switch.
 .
 Once this package is installed, adding BRCOMPAT=yes in
 /etc/default/openvswitch-switch enables bridge compatibility.
 .
 Open vSwitch is a full-featured software-based Ethernet switch.

openvswitch-common: Open vSwitch common components

 openvswitch-common provides components required by both openvswitch-switch
 and openvswitch-controller.
 .
 Open vSwitch is a full-featured software-based Ethernet switch.

openvswitch-controller: Open vSwitch controller implementation

 The Open vSwitch controller enables OpenFlow switches that connect to it
 to act as MAC-learning Ethernet switches.
 .
 Open vSwitch is a full-featured software-based Ethernet switch.

openvswitch-datapath-dkms: Open vSwitch datapath module source - DKMS version

 This package provides the Open vSwitch datapath module source code
 that is needed by openvswitch-switch. DKMS can built the kernel
 module from it.

openvswitch-datapath-source: Open vSwitch datapath module source - module-assistant version

 This package provides the Open vSwitch datapath module source code
 that is needed by openvswitch-switch. The kernel module can be built
 from it using module-assistant or make-kpkg. README.Debian in this
 package provides further instructions.
 .
 Open vSwitch is a full-featured software-based Ethernet switch.

openvswitch-dbg: Debug symbols for Open vSwitch packages

 This package contains the debug symbols for all the other openvswitch-*
 packages. Install it to debug one of them or to examine a core dump
 produced by one of them.

openvswitch-ipsec: Open vSwitch GRE-over-IPsec support

 The ovs-monitor-ipsec script provides support for encrypting GRE
 tunnels with IPsec.
 .
 Open vSwitch is a full-featured software-based Ethernet switch.

openvswitch-pki: Open vSwitch public key infrastructure dependency package

 openvswitch-pki provides PKI (public key infrastructure) support for
 Open vSwitch switches and controllers, reducing the risk of
 man-in-the-middle attacks on the Open vSwitch network infrastructure.
 .
 Open vSwitch is a full-featured software-based Ethernet switch.

openvswitch-switch: Open vSwitch switch implementations

 openvswitch-switch provides the userspace components and utilities for
 the Open vSwitch kernel-based switch.
 .
 Open vSwitch is a full-featured software-based Ethernet switch.

ovsdbmonitor: Open vSwitch graphical monitoring tool

 This package is a GUI tool for monitoring and troubleshooting local
 or remote Open vSwitch installations. It presents GUI tables that
 graphically represent an Open vSwitch kernel flow table (similar to
 "ovs-dpctl dump-flows") and Open vSwitch database contents (similar
 to "ovs-vsctl list <table>").
 .
 Open vSwitch is a full-featured software-based Ethernet switch.

python-openvswitch: Python bindings for Open vSwitch

 This package contains the full Python bindings for Open vSwitch database.
