Module openvswitch_mod not found during quantum install

Asked by narjisse ouakrim on 2012-06-25

Hi all,

I'm trying to install quantum on my nodes but when I do I get the following error (only on the second node, on the first node the install went properly)

 apt-get install openvswitch-switch quantum-plugin-openvswitch-agent

and of course i get the same result with modprobe.

when i try to look for openvswitch_mod i get the following output on the second node:

find /lib/modules -iname '*.o' -or -iname '*.ko' | grep 'openv'

/lib/modules/3.2.0-23-generic/updates/dkms/openvswitch_mod.ko

and this one on the first :

/lib/modules/3.2.0-25-generic/updates/dkms/openvswitch_mod.ko
/lib/modules/3.2.0-25-generic/kernel/openvswitch_mod.ko

I tried to copy openvswitch_mod.ko to match the path on the first node but it didn't work either.

Do you have any idea about how to get arround this?

Hi,

This actually seems to be a packaging issue. If you run:

dpkg -r openvswitch-switch openvswitch-datapath-dkms openvswitch-common quantum-plugin-openvswitch-agent quantum-common python-quantumclient python-quantum

then:
apt-get install openvswitch-switch
mkdir -p /etc/quantum/
apt-get install quantum-plugin-openvswitch-agent

it should install without errors.

maybe to run depmod will fix the problem:
depmod
modprobe openvswitch_mod

thanx for your help.

Both answers solved my problem.
