Downloading Oracle ASMLib From OTN
Locating the ASMLib Packages
|The ASMLib software is available from the Oracle Technology Network. Go to the ASMLib download page and follow the link for your platform.
You will see 4-6 packages for your Linux platform. The oracleasmlib package provides the actual ASM library. The oracleasm-support package provides the utilities used to get the ASM driver up and running. Both of these packages need to be installed.
The remaining packages provide the kernel driver for the ASM library. Each package provides the driver for a different kernel. You must install the appropriate package for the kernel you are running. Use the " uname -r command to determine the version of the kernel. The oracleasm kerel driver package will have that version string in its name. For example, if you were running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 AS, and the kernel you were using was the 2.6.9-5.0.5.ELsmp kernel, you would choose the oracleasm-2.6.9-5.0.5-ELsmp package. So, to install these packages on RHEL4 on an Intel x86 machine, you might use the command:
If you were on a different machine, the package names would be slightly different, replacing 'i686' with the appropriate architecture. Use the package names relevant for your distribution.
NOTE: Distributions with the Linux 2.4 kernel still use the 1.0 kernel driver, while distributions based on the Linux 2.6 kernel use the 2.0 kernel driver. All distributions use version 2.0 of the support and library packages. See the driver matrix for more information
Once the command completes, ASMLib is now installed on the system.
