Cannot open /dev/mcelog

Post by cloudflashes » 2008/07/02 04:54:36

My OS is CentOS release 4.4 (Final). I got error messages about mcelog as below:

/etc/cron.daily/mcelog.cron:
Cannot open /dev/mcelog

Here is the details of mcelog.cron:
# cat /etc/cron.daily/mcelog.cron
#!/bin/bash
/usr/sbin/mcelog >> /var/log/mcelog


I tried to create the /dev/mcelog device with following command but still have same error message:
mknod -m 0600 /dev/mcelog c 10 227


Could anybody give me a suggestion to solve this problem? Any hint is welcome.
