Folks, need some help in finding the correct asmlib for this linux box, have already tired one and screwed up one box, now trying on 2nd one.
Here is info: Oracle Linux Server release 5.6 x86_64
Please advice, I'm looking at here and tried this one, but it's not working too:
Intel EM64T (x86_64) Architecture
Library and Tools
and this is my oracleasm status on the server:
[root@rac1 ~]# rpm -qa | grep -i oracleasm
Please assist, do I need to upgrade or ... how to fix this problem and proceed to complete the Oracle RAC setup.
Thanks in advance.
Please use uname -r command to find out the kernel version and look into below link supported asmlib and support packages.

ASMLib is becoming "obsolete" (by system admins, not by Oracle Corp) and believe it will soon disappear.
For RHEL6 or Oracle Linux 6, Oracle will only provide ASMLib software and updates for the UEK Kernel and the Red Hat Compatible Kernel for Oracle Linux.
I recommend you use udev rules instead.
Thanks both of you, but I'm kind of stuck and couldn't decide, which doc/link/site to follow, can any one assist here, we have configured openfiler, but it's not visible from os, and here is current OS status:
[root@rac1 temp]# uname -a
Linux rac1.mydomain 2.6.32-100.26.2.el5 #1 SMP Tue Jan 18 20:11:49 EST 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root@rac1 temp]# rpm -qa | grep -i oracleasm
Can you please assist here, what needs to be done from here, will take care myself, but from here, couldn't decide, what to follow or proceed step by step.
Thanks a lot for all your help & assistance, also do update, if you need any more/specific info too.
