Hello ALL,

My environment is Fedora 7 (kernel 2.6.22.5-76.fc7) and I have oracle 10g (v 10.2.0.1 32bit) installed.
I have 03 disks installed. They are:
/dev/sda
/dev/sdb (unused)
/dev/sdc (unused)

The device /dev/sda is being used by Fedora7.
The other 2 devices ("b" and "c") I want use them as ASM. They are not partitioned yet. Just visible to fedora when "fdisk -l" command is issued.

To make them available as ASM disks... I want to download the utilities:

==> oracleasm-support
==> oracleasmlib
==> oracleasm

As oracle does not support Fedora7... how can I go on? I mean, how can I get oracleasm/oracleasmlib/oracleasm-support? No way?

Well... if ASM is not possible with Fedora7... any suggestion to implement shared disk architecture? Should I use OCFS2? Is it possible on Fedora7? I guess it is the same case as ASM (no way to download version to F7).

No way for Fedora7...(to create shared disk architecture)?

Also, on oracle site I saw ASMLib source to download and compile. A debian linux user has already tried to compile with errors. The bug is still in open status. And Oracle says at this site/page that oracle provide support only for rpm created by oracle.

Thank you!

Hello ALL,

Just to share information with you.

Most likely ASMLib and OCFS packages may not be available for the kernel version you are using (I did check asmlib and it is not available). As such ASMLib and/or OCFS are not really mandatory for having ASM...you can very well use the raw devices for creating diskgroups for ASM.

Thanks
Chandra
