ocfs2 RAC on Red hat linux 6 - kernel -- 2.6.32-220.el6.x86_64 -Oracle11gR2

Hello,

We want to use ocfs2 as the shared file system for running Oracle RAC 11gR2 on Red hat linux 6.

The red hat linux kernel is 2.6.32-220.el6.x86_64.

I checked the ocfs2 download site and there is no ocfs2 rpms for Red hat 6, infact there are no ocfs2 rpms for Linux 6.

What options do I have if ...go down to Linux 5.x or move to Oracle linux 6.

If my understanding is correct Oracle linux 6 has ocfs2 in the kernel itself and does not need to be installed separately.

What other options do I have for having a shared file system .... ?

Please comment.

Thanks,
X.
