[Bug 827479] New: ocfs2 from the update repo doesn't work at all

Summary: ocfs2 from the update repo doesn't work at all
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 12.3
Version: Final
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: openSUSE 12.3
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Basesystem
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: werner.flamme@xxxxxx
QAContact: qa-bugs@xxxxxxx
Found By: ---

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:22.0) Gecko/20100101

I installed ocfs2 with all dependencies via "zypper in ocfs2-tools-o2cb
ocfs2console". The packages are taken from the update-oss repository. Then I
created a 2 TB file system - the output ended with "mkfs.ocfs2 successful".
Then I created a cluster.conf manually. To check my work, I tried:

o2cb list-clusters
o2cb: Unknown code ____ 251 while loading cluster configuration file

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/ocfs2console", line 33, in <module>
from ocfs2interface.console import main
File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/ocfs2interface/", line 26,
in <module>
from mount import mount, unmount
File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/ocfs2interface/", line 20,
in <module>
import ocfs2
ImportError: /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/ocfs2interface/
undefined symbol: io_queue_release

OK, so I removed my cluster.conf and used the commands:

o2cb add-cluster OCFS2WERNAS
o2cb add-node --ip OCFS2WERNAS klops
o2cb add-node --ip OCFS2WERNAS sieben
o2cb add-node --ip OCFS2WERNAS thinkt51
o2cb list-nodes OCFS2WERNAS
number = 0
name = klops
ip_address =
ip_port = 7777
cluster = OCFS2WERNAS

And really, cluster.conf only holds one node. Adding the nodes with their
respective --number does not help. Manually editing the cluster.conf does not
bring any of those in the output of "o2cb list-nodes OCFS2WERNAS" - still one
node. Changing "heartbeat_mode" from local to global does not make any change
in the behaviour either. Running "rco2cb configure" and repeating all steps
afterwards (with o2cb running) does not help either. On contrast, all manual
changes to the nodes in cluster.conf are lost again, the changes of
"heartbeat_mode" remains.

And since ocfs2console does not start, I have no means to add any nodes. How
can I set up a working OCFS2 cluster with at least 3 nodes? It was easy using
all this on SLES 11 (with HA extension)...

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
see details
Actual Results:
only one node is added to the cluster.conf, and only one node is recognized by

Expected Results:
I expeted to find all the nodes that I want in the cluster.conf
