Oracleasm Configure gets Error – Unable To Load Module Oracleasm

 Unable to load oracleasm kernel module:
/etc/init.d/oracleasm configure
Configuring the Oracle ASM library driver.

This will configure the on-boot properties of the Oracle ASM Library Driver
driver. The following questions will determine whether the driver is
loaded on boot and what permissions it will have. The current values
will be shown in brackets (‘[]’). Hitting <ENTER> without typing an
answer will keep that current value. Ctrl-C will abort.

Default user to own the driver interface [oracle]:
Default group to own the driver interface [dba]:
Start Oracle ASM library driver on boot (y/n) [y]:
Fix permissions of Oracle ASM disks on boot (y/n) [y]:
Writing Oracle ASM library driver configuration: [ OK ]
Loading module “oracleasm”: Unable to load module “oracleasm”

Possible Reason:
The oracleasm kernel module version does not exactly match the kernel version
For example:
kernel driver module (from rpm -qa command): oracleasm-2.6.18-
kernel version (from uname -r): 2.6.18-8.el5 #1 SMP

To implement the solution, please execute the following steps:
For “Unbreakable Linux Network” customers using the “compatible” (with RHEL) kernel: obtain the appropriate driver with command:
up2date -i oracleasm-`uname -r`
