The Oracle ASMLIB product has a kernel-specific component, the ASMLIB driver. This is provided in an RPM package which must be updated whenever the Linux kernel is updated. This RPM package is closely coupled with the variety of the kernel being used on a given host, so a variety of RPM packages are available.
Choosing the proper version to match one's currently-running kernel is not always simple. The official RPM packages are available from either http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/linux/downloads/rhel5-084877.html or the Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN).
