      i tried a lot to install oracleasm but its failing error as shown below:
      [root@red ~]# oracleasm init
      Loading module "oracleasm": failed
      Unable to load module "oracleasm"

      [root@red ~]# /etc/init.d/oracleasm createdisk VOL1 /dev/sdb1
      Marking disk "VOL1" as an ASM disk: [FAILED]

      please help
