Description of problem:
Here is what happens when you mount -t gfs /dev/sdd   /tmp/mntpnt
mount: fs type gfs not supported by kernel

Regarding the inability to mount the gfs filesystem.....I ran modprobe gfs.
The result was:  FATAL: Module gfs not found.
So I ran depmod -a, then ran modprobe gfs again...this time a silent response.

Then the mount command worked as expected. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

This should be fixed in the latest versions of cman,GFS,dlm & gnbd-kernel.
