    How to install ASM on Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.3

      I am a bit lost .. I have Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.3 and ULN subscription:

      The only package available through yum is oracleasm-support.x86_64
      I have downloaded http://download.oracle.com/otn_software/asmlib/oracleasmlib-2.0.4-1.el6.x86_64.rpm but i am still missing the kernel drivers i guess:
