I understand that you cannot run release 2 on RH9 - you should install R1.

You understand that RH9 is not supported?

My apologies ... I see that right at the bottom.
Confusion due to your profile stating RH9.

Please edit your profile. RH9,RHEL-AS4

So modprobe cannot find the module.

Have you checked that the module is in modprobe's search path? Or even present? (Note - installed rpm is not the same as module present and in correct place.) Presumably modprobe is working - so we must take it's error message seriously.

After doing updatedb, try locate oracleasm to see where, and if, the module file exists.
