    mcelog is apparently in standard repositories for 11.4
    <http://software.opensuse.org/search?q=mcelog&baseproject=openSUSE%3A11.4&lang=en&exclude_debug=true>
    so I'm not sure why you're having trouble finding it?

    Default why is there no i586 package for mcelog?

    Sorry, I just realized that there's no i586 package showing. I don't
    have any idea about that. I've changed the title to make it clearer.

    I did find a i586 version here http://software.opensuse.org/search/...m&query=mcelog

    I just got the error again, and running
    Code:
    mcelog --ascii < /dev/mcelog
    Returned nothing...?

    What steps could i perform to find out more about the hardware problem?

    Thanks.,

    In my /var/log/messages i see that it is most likely related to audio:

    I did a
    Code:
    grep -A 1 "Machine check" messages
    and this was the output

    Code:

    How have you installed mcelog? If you're running the daemon then you
    probably want to look in /var/logs/mcelog
