Just a tip. Though obviously I do not know your exact FireWire setup, I
ended up with Centos 5 and kernel 2.6.18-92.1.6.el5.centos.plus were
firewire works perfectly especially for TCP/IP over Ether over Firewire.

Subject: [Linux-cluster] Help with Oracle ASMLib 2.0 and Fedora 9




I am attempting to setup an Oracle RAC using these instructions:


I am running Fedora 9 with kernel = 2.6.25-14.fc9.i686


I realize this is probably an "unsupported" version, but it's the only
version that I could get to work with my firewire setup, so I cannot change
the kernel. 

ocfs2 is up and running, and now I need to install ASMLib 2.0, but it
appears that there is no rpm distribution for this kernel.  Therefore, I am
attempting to build my own, from the source files, oracleasm-2.0.4.tar.gz.
After unzipping and untarring, I run ./configure and it seems to run fine
(see below), but when I try to run make install it bombs with an error no
rule to make target `oracleasm.ko', needed by `install-oracleasm'.  Stop.


I don't have any experience building rpms from source, so any explicit
instructions you can give me would be much appreciated.  Also, does this
source file contain everything I need in order to build the kernel driver,
userspace library, and driver support files, or do I need separate source
files for those?  Please forgive my ignorance, as I am new to this.


Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
