[Linux-cluster] GFS2 on CentOS v5.2

Many thanks for the clear info.

I've installed kmod-gfs and cman-2.0.84. I notice that kmod gfs2 is loaded when I start service cman.
I see that gfs2.ko is part of kernel-2.6.18-92.1.18.el5, which is the kernel in use on the system. 

Is this expected behaviour?

When I exec  service gfs start     should I expect gks.ko to be loaded?

Thx Again....

The reason that you've not seen reports from people running 5.2 and 5.1 (whether RHEL or CentOS) is that we've been discouraging people from using those versions. The 5.3 beta version of RHEL is the best one for eval purposes at the moment, also Fedora would be a good distro to test if you want something thats most uptodate,
