You are rite. ATM, Oracle only certifies GFS 6.0 on x86 RHEL3 only. Anyway,
we have been running a RAC with GFS 6.0 on ia64 RHEL 3 for months
without no major problem. We had some problems with < patchset but
after upgrading to the current patchset, the system is quite stable.

We have been testing another RAC with GFS 6.1 on ia64 RHEL 4 for two
weeks. So far so good. If things go smoothly in the next two weeks, we will
upgrade our production system to RHEL4. Yeah we know that using something
not certified is dangerous but as far as I know Oracle has no plan to
certify GFS 6.1 on RHEL4. So we must certify it ourselves!
