You do know that oracleasm oracleasm/ASMlib is not necessary to use ASM? I have never used it on any platform - well, I tested it on a system at home once... but, because I found it redundant, I re-installed without it. Oh - forgot to mention that I have only installed >75 clusters (Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, Linux) and never had an issue. I do not do "windows'.
If someone wants to convince me that it is necessary and what features you get that ASMCMD, ASMCA, sqlplus / as sysasm can't do, I would consider taking another look... maybe.
Went back to regular file system
ASMLIB driver should be already included in Oracle UEK kernels.
For redhat kernel asmlib is not supported anymore, take a look at "Oracle ASMLib Software Update Policy for Red Hat Enterprise Linux Supported by Red Hat [ID 1089399.1]"
But in case you are using redhat kernel, you can use ASM without ASMLIB. Asmlib is not a requirement for ASM.
