    Can't view mce hardware errors

    I am getting an MCE hardware error and am having trouble finding out what it is.
    I suspect it's a memory problem
    I get a popup kernel error about every 5-10 minutes.


    a typical journal entry:
    Jun 18 18:22:40 wilma.dvavra.com kernel: mce: [Hardware Error]: Machine check events logged

    mcelog is running as a daemon
    /usr/sbin/mcelog --ignorenodev --daemon --foreground

    but I can't seem to get any information using mcelog
    sudo mcelog --client

    returns nothing and there isn't a /var/log/mcelog which, according to the mcelog manual, I should have.
    Is it maybe somewhere else?

    Is there something else I need to do to get more info on the error?

    I am currently running F22

    What do you get if you run
    Code:
    systemctl status mcelog
