Suppress "mcelog does not support this processor" error message

Recommended Posts

The mcelog command doesn't support AMD processors and the resulting error message, which appears once in the syslog at boot-up, causes confusion and anxiety. For a list of supported CPUs type


mcelog --help


and to test whether the current CPU is supported run


mcelog --is-cpu-supported


which returns no error message and a return code of zero if the CPU is on the supported list, or the error message and a non-zero return code in the case of an unsupported CPU. So, to suppress the error message, first call "mcelog --is-cpu-supported" with the error message redirected to /dev/null and test the return code. If it is zero then call mcelog again with the appropriate options. If it is non-zero, check that the edac_mce_amd module is loaded instead.
