grid  install on OEL 6.3 fails

Currently Being Moderated
Grid Single node (not doing RAC) (latest download available from otn) install fails during ./ execution

Fails with

Creating OCR keys for user 'grid', privgrp 'oinstall'..
Operation successful.
CRS-4664: Node node1 successfully pinned.
Adding daemon to inittab

ohasd failed to start: Inappropriate ioctl for device
ohasd failed to start: Inappropriate ioctl for device at /ocw/grid/crs/install/ line 296.
Oracle root script execution aborted!

Perl link is there, there is no privilege issue in the /tmp directories as suggested by MOS ID 1069182.1

Fresh new install of OEL6.3 UEK, preinstall completed no issues, oracleasm config, issues; however

running oracleasm update-driver - says there is no driver for kernel 2.6.39-200.24.1.el6uek.x68_64

I tried the suggestions in one of the threads where a initctl is added to the perl script...that also produced a fail

Any help...?
