do we have ASM kernel for this version?

I am running Oracle Linux 6.3.

I have the ASM lib and support packages installed. Services are started successfully.

However , I was informed that I needed this package as well


Does Oracle 6.3 require this package?

Running "service oracleasm status" returns YES for all checks.

However creating disks returns

/usr/sbin/oracleasm createdisk DATADISK1 /dev/emcpowerc1
Writing disk header: done
Instantiating disk: failed
Clearing disk header: done

Any ideas?
