    ASM on CentOS installation problem

    dario-2280378
      Hello,

      I'm trying to install ASM on CentOS, but I receive an error.
      CenOS version is 6.3 (final)

      kernel version is 2.6.32-220.23.1.el6.x86_64

      first, I' receiving this dependencies error:
      [root@home asm]# rpm -ivh oracleasm*
      warning: oracleasm-2.6.18-308.13.1.el5-2.0.5-1.el5.x86_64.rpm: Header V3 DSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 1e5e0159: NOKEY
      error: Failed dependencies:
              kernel = 2.6.18-308.13.1.el5 is needed by oracleasm-2.6.18-308.13.1.el5-2.0.5-1.el5.x86_64
              kernel-debug = 2.6.18-308.13.1.el5 is needed by oracleasm-2.6.18-308.13.1.el5debug-2.0.5-1.el5.x86_64
              kernel-xen = 2.6.18-308.13.1.el5 is needed by oracleasm-2.6.18-308.13.1.el5xen-2.0.5-1.el5.x86_64
      when I try to run oracleasm, I receive:
      [oracle@home dbs]$ oracleasm configure
      Unable to update configuration linkage
      any hint?

      tnx

          CentOS is not a supported distro - use a a supported Linux version that is documented at http://docs.oracle.com for your unknown software version.

            The Oracleasm kernel driver is not available for RHEL 6 and derivatives. As of RHEL 6 or later it is only included with the Oracle Linux UEK kernel.

              Don't use oracleasm (asmlib). Search for this phrase "You do not need it" in this forum.
