openvswitch rpm on RHEL 6.3 frustration


On RHEL 6.3, with EPEL repos, we have openstack-quantum-openvswitch.noarch.
 It requires openvswitch.x86_64, which isn't provided by either RHEL
channels or EPEL!

So I tracked down the openvswitch source (not that hard) , and after a few
hours of battling various compilation erros, ended up with three rpms that
I add to my mrepo yum repo:

[root@cs-repo-02 SysEng6-x86_64]# ls *openv*
kmod-openvswitch-1.7.3-1.el6.x86_64.rpm  openvswitch-1.7.3-1.x86_64.rpm

So I re-run my attempt to install the OpenVswitch plugin and guess what!

Error: Package: openvswitch-1.7.3-1.x86_64 (syseng6)
           Requires: openvswitch-kmod

You say openvswitch-kmod, I say kmod-openvswitch, you say go F yourself.

It's late, I've been working this for weeks.  This is just the latest
obstacle. Please help.

The OpenVswitch people are few and unresponsive, by the way.  Useless
mailing lists.
