debian 2.6.26 unable to get mcelog up and running
I have run into a road block with getting mcelog up and running.
At this point I am a little lost and spinning my wheels. I am thinking am missing something that is obvious to someone more knowledgable. I am fairly new to linux and doing my best to get up to speed.
I am working on a machine with Debian 2.6.26
The machine was freezing with the caps lock and num lock light blinking. This was happening intermittently.
Multiple instances of "Machine check events logged" show up on the machine.
I did some research that lead to the cause possibly being hardware related.
I ran memtest86+ and let it cycle 6 times. No memory errors were produced.
My next course of action is to enable mce logging then try to reproduce the problem and see if the mcelog provides us with more information.
Here's what I have done and where I got stuck:
# sudo apt-get install mcelog
I was prompted to load the disc. I did so and it and it completed the actions successfully.
Now running # sudo apt-get install mcelog gives me:
"mcelog is already the newest version."
I am getting stuck at installing and configuring mcelog.
I am using the mcelog site for installation and config instructions.
Compile and install
... become root ...
cd mcelog returns "no such file or directory"
I searched for files and directories containing mcelog and found a bunch here are the mcelog files/dir's on my system.
I really don't know where to go from here. I have researched make, mcelog for debian 2.6.26 etc..
Any help on getting getting mcelogging up and running or any other advice would be greatly appreciated!
# find / -name '*mcelog*'

Generally, when you get
To be sure, you may type in a terminal man mcelog or info mcelog to access manual pages / info file or simply mcelog to start it.
