    Default syslogd messages

    Im running openSUSE 12.2 and I keep getting the messages below popping up in my console.

    Any ideas what it means?

    And can I stop the message getting sent to the console?

    I also get a popup and a Bell sound in KDE. Is there a way top turn that off ?

    Of course the best solution would be to stop the error itself - any ideas?


    Code:

    The message itself is from the kernel. All "syslogd" does, is convey the message to you.

    While I'm not completely sure, I think that message is telling you that your CPU is failing.

    That your hardware has an emergency and you have to act.

    Ok thanks. Ill look into the hardware fault.

    Anyone know a way to suppress the messages in the meantime?

    Your computer might be dying, but I would try other versions of openSUSE
    or other linuxes to make sure.

    man syslogd - really, you have to edit the syslog configuration.

    I think I would consider it time to do a full PC cleaning, to remove all dust, check to make sure all fans are running and to re-seat all cards and memory. If your PC should ever suddenly shutdown, that is often due to the CPU over heating. Its just another thing you should look into I think.

    Thank You,
