Hi team,
is there any documentation/steps to have sonic-vpp for a specific vendor.?
or what changes needed to run sonic-vpp on any vendor specific chip?
as i can see there is some config_syncd inside syncd_init_common.sh in the sonic-vpp github repos
where vendor specific things mentioned.

Hi Alkama,
   There is no vendor specific code in sonic-vpp. Currently sonic-vpp platform is developed/tested/verified on 
commodity servers with processors supporting amd64 architecture.(basically x86_64). What you see in syncd_ini_common.sh is
sonic-vpp platform specific code changes. Sonic-vpp has not been tested on ARM servers.
sonic-vpp is not meant to run on switch hardware for sure.

Thanks

Alkama,
   Not sure I have seen this issue before. Please check if you need to use a http proxy to reach internet, if so specify
the proxy too in the build command as instructed in the README.md. If that does not help, try building by doing
 a reset " make reset" and "make sonic".

Thanks
