    install Oracle 10gR2 RAC on OEL5

    We are trying to install Oracle 10gR2 Clusterware and RAC on Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 (OEL5). We are referring Oracle document B14203-08 (the document is mainly for Linux 3 or 4 but this is the latest Oracle document on this topic). The document talked about using rawdevices service for mapping the raw device to block device. But OEL5 doesn't have rawdevices service anymore. Anyone knows a new approach on doing this? Thank you.

    ASM provides you near raw device performance. ASM was developed by Oracle's same team that developed RAC, integrates smoothly and works great!

    Thank you PAVB and Pando for your reply. Actually I am using ASM and udev for my 1ogR2/Linux 4 configuration. It's just what changes are there in Linux 5 on this part that I don't know yet.
