mce: [Hardware Error]: Machine check events logged

Post by syntax_error77 » 2015/04/29 06:07:41

Hi,

I'm getting the above error once in a while. Hardware is a Mac mini mid 2011 and Im running qemu/kvm with a win10 client.
I am guessing that CentOS7 gets this error when the mini is running hot. Just wondering if I should take care of that or even ignore it.
Any advice?

edit: kernel is 3.10.0-229.1.2.el7.x86_64
if any other info is needed, please ask

Thanks

The output from mcelog would be useful.

no logs in /var/logs

also, bug reporting tool says that this error can't be reported

Is the mcelog package installed?

Thanks for your reply. I stopped using Linux on that Mac for now. Tried alsmost all distributions and always had trouble. I managed to get my hands on two Dell Optiplex and will be installing CentOS on those machines.
