Ok, I deserve that ;).
[root cerebro ~]# rpm -qa | grep ocfs
ocfs2-2.6.18-128.1.6.el5-1.4.1-1.el5
ocfs2console-1.4.1-1.el5
ocfs2-tools-devel-1.4.1-1.el5
ocfs2-tools-1.4.1-1.el5

I'm using CentOS 5.3 with the last release from oss.oracle.com i've found.

PS: Just a ponit, to use o2cb init script with centos I need to
commend exit 1 line for lsb-functions check. Everything works fine,
maybe lsb-functions "script" isnt a fatal dependency.

OK, I can accept that. I'm using ext3 by now, so for some users this
can just "dont change". But I dont believe that have most users with
thousand mails per folder. Probably just a bit, not something to
really worry now.

Really thanks for info :).
