From the OCFS2 page:

OCFS2 1.6 is only available with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel. Users wishing to upgrade to the new release must logon to the Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN) and subscribe to the Oracle Linux 5 Latest channel.

Looks like oracle is going to make you convert your kernel to their "new" Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel, or use a vanilla kernel with 1.6 compiled in. From the ocfs2 web page:

The file system source code is available with the mainline Linux kernel that can be downloaded from The file system source code for the Enterprise kernels is available from

The ocfs2-tools source is available at (No binaries for rhel5)

You could try GFS2. It has extended attribute supprt, which means ACL and SELinux are supported. – katriel Nov 19 '10 at 9:41
