Updated mcelog packages that fix numerous bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The mcelog package contains a daemon that collects and decodes Machine Check Exception (MCE) data on AMD64 and Intel 64 machines.


The mcelog packages have been upgraded to upstream version 0.6, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#795931)

Bug Fixes

The mcelog(8) man page contained incorrect information about usage of the "--supported" flag. This man page has been updated and the information is correct now.
Previously, the mcelog daemon ignored the 15h microarchitecture family of AMD processors and did not report the Machine Check Exception (MCE) errors. Consequently, reported errors were unavailable to system administrators. The 15h microarchitecture family of AMD processors has been included to the list of supported processors and mcelog reports MCE errors correctly in this case.


This enhancement adds support for the Intel Core i5 and i7 processors to the mcelog packages.
All users of mcelog are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
