mcelog has been deprecated. Kernel needs to be compiled with CONFIG_X86_MCELOG_LEGACY. rasdaemon (not in repos) is the official replacement.

Steps to reproduce:

mcelog fails with error "mcelog: Cannot open `/dev/mcelog': No such device". The daemon silently fails because systemd service is configured with `--ignorenodev`. Following the instructions ( to `mknod /dev/mcelog c 10 227` does not help. The device appears to be created, but `cat /dev/mcelog` says `No such device`.
This task depends upon
