Hallo!I am trying to install Oracle database 11.2.0.1 on Oracle Linux 6.0 32 bit deployed on VirtualBox.I am setting up a single-instance database on ASM thus doing
Grid installation on a stand-alone server.I launched the Grid installer OUI and when I run the root script

/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/grid/root.sh

I get the following error


Adding daemon to inittab
CRS-4124: Oracle High Availability Services startup failed.
CRS-4000: Command Start failed, or completed with errors.
ohasd failed to start: Inappropriate ioctl for device
ohasd failed to start: Inappropriate ioctl for device at /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/grid/crs/install/roothas.pl line 296.

When I check the /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/grid/log/joey-oel6/client/crsctl.log it gives me the following error messages
