Description Elijah Newren 2004-04-16 12:40:24 EDT
Description of problem: I was just working on the computer (compiling gtkmm in a terminal while working with Mozilla), when the system froze with the Caps Lock and Scroll Lock lights blinking. After rebooting (it rebooted fine and seems to be working okay now), I checked /var/log/messages and saw this: Apr 16 10:13:13 Eenie kernel: CPU 0: Machine Check Exception: 0000000000000004 The line before that was dated over an hour before and appears unrelated. The line after that in the log corresponds to when I rebooted and thus is also unrelated. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 'rpm -q kernel' reports kernel-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl How reproducible: This is the First Time I've Ever Seen It (TM). Additional info: What other information would you need? If this indicates there's something wrong with my system, what kind of diagnostics should I run? Thanks!

This is likely a hardware problem - CPU or memory, even mobo. Keep stressing by compiling gtkmm or kernel, you should be able to reproduce the MCE.

Sorry for not responding sooner. I tried stressing it a couple times, but didn't see the error/warning again. I guess I should have closed it myself. Sorry about that. Anyway, thanks for the quick response. Hopefully it was just a one-time fluke, though I won't be surprised if it comes up again...
