Re: [Linux-cluster] Help with Oracle ASMLib 2.0 and Fedora 9

If you are using ocfs2, then ASM and ASMlib are not required. ASM uses raw disks and ASMlib provides ASM a way to easily recognize said disks.

I am attempting to setup an Oracle RAC using these instructions: http://www.oracle.com/technology/pub/articles/hunter_rac10gr2_iscsi_2.html#17

I am running Fedora 9 with kernel = 2.6.25-14.fc9.i686

I realize this is probably an “unsupported” version, but it’s the only version that I could get to work with my firewire setup, so I cannot change the kernel.

ocfs2 is up and running, and now I need to install ASMLib 2.0, but it appears that there is no rpm distribution for this kernel. Therefore, I am attempting to build my own, from the source files, oracleasm-2.0.4.tar.gz. After unzipping and untarring, I run ./configure and it seems to run fine (see below), but when I try to run make install it bombs with an error no rule to make target `oracleasm.ko', needed by `install-oracleasm'. Stop.

I don’t have any experience building rpms from source, so any explicit instructions you can give me would be much appreciated. Also, does this source file contain everything I need in order to build the kernel driver, userspace library, and driver support files, or do I need separate source files for those? Please forgive my ignorance, as I am new to this.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
