Open vSwitch on Ubuntu

OMG, don't try to build Open vSwitch from source if you can avoid it, if you are on Ubuntu just follow these steps to apt-get it, and then it builds the database and runs itself.

The problem is that most normal people just want to run ovs in a VM with mininet, but I wanted to run it on a real bare-metal server with actual traffic.
