Wattson Setup


Wattson requires a Linux operating system to work.

It uses native Linux networking namespaces for leight-weight hosts, Docker for more sophisticated and isolated hosts, KVM-based Virtual Machines for fully isolated custom hosts and Open vSwitch for layer 2 switching.

For the correct operation, you need various dependency packages, which can be automatically installed via apt on Ubuntu 22.04.
For other distributions, please follow the manual installation process.

Manual Setup

Manual setup is currently not documented.

You can try to install the dependencies with your desired package manager and install the Open vSwitch daemon analogously to the automated setup. Please document your steps in a new Issue on Github.
