OEL 6.1 with SF 5.1 SP1 PR2 P1 install doesn't work

Hello,

 

I tried to install SF 5.1 SP1 PR2 on Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.1 I got this error:

Logs are being written to /var/tmp/installer-201109191328Uoa while installer is in progress

Veritas Storage Foundation Startup did not complete successfully

vxdmp failed to start on edev
vxio failed to start on edev
vxspec failed to start on edev
vxconfigd failed to start on edev
vxesd failed to start on edev
vxodm failed to start on edev

It is strongly recommended to reboot the following systems:
        edev

Execute '/sbin/shutdown -r now' to properly restart your systems

After reboot, run the '/opt/VRTS/install/installsf -start electra-dev' command to start Veritas Storage Foundation

 I found the following article about the bug:

https://sort.symantec.com/patch/detail/5186/

I upgraded the vxvm with this patch vm-rhel6_x86_64-5.1SP1PR2P1.

I got the following error message:

[root@edev rpms]# rpm -Uvh VRTSvxvm-5.1.120.100-SP1PR2P1_RHEL6.x86_64.rpm

I doesn't work after reboot too.

I found a similar differences between version of SF kernel module and the Oracle factory default kernel version.

Is it important or not? How can I build a right SF kernel modul version for OEL 6.1?
