Install is 100% stock, off Minimal Install disk, then added groups for
Desktop. Up to date.
[tmiller at office04]$uname -r
Then I tried the command the web page has (I see my error during bootup)
[root at office04 Documents]# /etc/init.d/mcelogd start
[root at office04 Documents]# /etc/init.d/mcelogd status
Checking for mcelog
mcelog is stopped
[tmiller at office04]$ls /dev/mc*
so the device does exist
[root at office04 Documents]# locate edac_mci_amd
returned nothing, but I don't know if it should or not.
I was reading the MAN page, and noticed "See mcelog --help for a list of
valid CPUs." so I tried it, and it lists:
Valid CPUs: generic p6old core2 k8 p4 dunnington xeon74xx xeon7400
xeon5500 xeon5200 xeon5000 xeon5100 xeon3100 xeon3200 core_i7 core_i5
core_i3 nehalem westmere xeon71xx xeon7100 tulsa intel xeon75xx
xeon7500 xeon7200 xeon7100 sandybridge sandybridge-ep
All the CPUs I recognize in there are Intel, though I don't know all the
on my system shows (only first of two cores copied)

Not the latest and greatest, and old enough I expected it to be supported
Any clues in all this?
