Intel Comet Lake MCE error

Post by tonychangtw219 » 2020/06/24 01:19:37

I get the one testing mbs with Intel new general processor( Comet Lake ) Intel(R) Celeron(R) G5900TE CPU @ 3.00GHz

when installing the Centos 7.7 1908 DVD and install some packages. we find the message and dmesg will have mce error/warning.


Due to Centos 7.7 yum repolist mcelog only support 144 version.

----------------------------------------------------
[root@localhost ~]# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 3.10.0-1062.18.1.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Mar 17 23:49:17 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS Linux release 7.7.1908 (Core)
[root@localhost ~]# mcelog
mcelog: Family 6 Model 165 CPU: only decoding architectural errors
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I try to update the MCElog 170 version by github can solve decoding architectural errors issue.

[root@localhost ~]# mcelog --version
mcelog v170
[root@localhost ~]#
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
But, below kernel warning I cannot fix, and try to update to kernel 5.7.4 result is the same, I will share to the BIOS team to check it.

[mbtuser@localhost ~]$ uname -a

may we need Team help to advise and support if the problem can solve on Kernel update in the future?

This isn't an mce error, it's just a warning spit out during the setup of the mce driver: your firmware (bios) is buggy. Because the kernel detected this and worked around it, no further action is required.

Besides: 7.7 is dead by now and totaly unsupported.
