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 but i am still missing the kernel drivers i guess:

[root@testdb1 user]# uname -r
[root@testdb1 user]# cat /etc/redhat-release

[root@testdb1 user]# cat /etc/oracle-release
