This page shows the absolute minimum to get libfluid running.
We are assuming Ubuntu 12.04 for the steps below. Detailed instructions for other distributions (Fedora only for now) are available in other pages: A quick intro to libfluid_base and A quick intro to libfluid_msg.
Install the dependencies:
Clone the libfluid repository:
The bootstrap script will clone both libraries that form libfluid: libfluid_base, which deals with OpenFlow control channel, and libfluid_msg, which provides classes for building and parsing OpenFlow messages. The bootstraping process will also checkout the repositories to stable versions of both libraries.
Build and install libfluid_base:
For more information, see A quick intro to libfluid_base.
Build and install libfluid_msg:
For more information, see A quick intro to libfluid_msg.
Build and run the sample controller:
For more information, see Example controller implementations.
Start Mininet and run:
Change [IP] to the IP address on which you are running
That's it. Now check out the Documentation page to learn more about libfluid and the other examples.
If you are building an application that uses or extends libfluid, check the API reference.
