Sorry, I was in transit yesterday when this was posted or I would have 
replied sooner. You should note for the 1.8.6-wc release that Whamcloud 
is only supporting RHEL\CentOS5 servers and clients and RHEL6 clients - 
we are not routinely building and testing SLES. We have done some 
exploratory work on extending to include SLES and may add this in future 
1.8.x releases. SLES11 clients are already supported for the upcoming 
2.1 community release. In the meantime, SLES users can still use the 
equivalent Oracle 1.8.6 release (though someone from Oracle would need 
to comment on the availability of this).
