[RFE] Support non-root OVS (including DPDK)
Last modified: 2017-08-09 16:49:09 EDT
Description of problem:
As part of the '--user' feature to run Open vSwitch as non-root user, the /var/run/openvswitch directory which is created by systemd will have incorrect ownership.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Attempting to start openvswitch as a non-root user will expose the issue. A workaround exists by manually creating /var/run/openvswitch and assigning permissions before running 'systemctl start openvswitch'
Note: OVS-DPDK still requires root privileges to work.
