I'll take a guess that you installed ASM with user grid rather than user oracle.  Did you put oracle in the asmadmin group?  If so then a simple

newgrp asmadmin

before trying to create your database should fix your problem.  You should, though, have installed ASM as oracle.

I need some ideas..
I use ASM with an oracle database in 11gR2 with RH5 and asmlib  :  2.6.18-164.el5 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

[root_at_dbyac43: ~]# rpm -qa --qf "%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}.%{ARCH}.rpm\n" | grep asm

[root_at_dbyac43: ~]#  df -ha

I' m not able to load with user oracle, but not problem with user grid.
I 've already reinstalled rpm and asm disk.

If someone have an idea, it could help.

Thank you
