Oracle Linux 6.2 with RAC 11g cluster install fails on ioctl

I have 2 HP Servers I'm trying to install a cluster to.
I've tried Oracle Linux 6.2 and 6.3 with the same error on both nodes when running the script.

I have tried the permissions, run-levels, etc that I have found in the forum and nothing has worked except the deconfigure works great. /u01/app/11.2.0/grid/crs/install/ -deconfig -force Errors:
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 at /u01/app/11.2.0/grid/crs/install/ line 443.

I can't see whats wrong, I did use ASM to configure iSCSI disks from a storage device which appeared to work correctly:
# oracleasm listdisks

# ls /dev/oracleasm/disks/

When I created the disks with ASM I used multipath successfuly:
# oracleasm createdisk VOL1 /dev/mapper/23535333762373932

The other node can see the disks just fine with oracleasm listdisks

I chose 3 disks for the OCR - VOL1-3

There was one forum work around to edit the $GRID_HOME/crs/install/ which I did no Oracle Linux 6.3 to no avail. I also tried using NFS mounted volumes for the OCR drives but got the same error.

Using the install: linux.x64_11gR2_grid
