I tried to use the openvswitch with dpdk in Clear Linux 12450, but noticed a few problems.
First, since version 2.6.0 the procedure to enable DPDK has changed and the flag --dpdk is not supported by the ovs-vswitchd command anymore, instead it is now necessary to configure DPDK using the ovs-vsctl command to set the other_config field with the desired parameters as detailed in https://github.com/openvswitch/ovs/blob/branch-2.6/INSTALL.DPDK.md. So the documentation in https://clearlinux.org/documentation/ac-ovs-dpdk.html should be updated. Exchanging the procedure number 7 from the "Using Linux OpenvSwitch-DPDK" section to the one detailed in the 2.6 documentation, ex:
ovs-vsctl --no-wait set Open_vSwitch . other_config:dpdk-init=true
ovs-vsctl --no-wait set Open_vSwitch . other_config:dpdk-socket-mem="2048,0"
Second, even with the correct commands, dpdk was not working, since the package is missing the flag "--with-dpdk" in the configure command of the SPEC file. After regenerating the package and using the correct procedure, the dpdk support in OVS worked as expected.

This client release enables mandatory signature verification, which means
the Manifest.MoM signature MUST verify correctly for an update operation to
continue, else swupd will exit. This ensures that wherever the content comes
from, clients are guaranteed to receive the "correct" content that they were
intended to consume. It also forces clients to remain on the secure update
path if only verifiable content is allowed on the system.
What is the procedure for installing Clear Linux alongside existing UEFI OSes? I'm replacing a previous installation of RHEL with Clear Linux, and I want Clear Linux to overwrite the boot loader configuration from RHEL. The first OS installed on the system was Windows 8.1, and that needs to remain installed. I tried setting the mountpoint of the existing UEFI partition to /boot in the Clear Linux installer, and I can see that the installer has populated /boot/loader with various files. However, when I boot the system, the RHEL bootloader appears with only the old RHEL and Windows boot options.
