It is necessary to compile your kernel with CONFIG_X86_MCELOG_LEGACY=Y in order to use this package

@jgottula Thank you for flagging this. I've seen it actually already made it to the master branch, but I'm hesitant to include it since there is no new tag. Once there is a new tag, I will update the package

@otaj Not sure if anyone particularly cares about this, but: There's a minor annoying journal message that comes up periodically due to a syntax error in this package's logrotate config file.

I reported it upstream just now: https://github.com/andikleen/mcelog/issues/102

If you wanted to make a temporary package-level patch to that file for the meantime, that'd be cool; if it's too much bother for such a trivial thing, that's fine too.

@erb: I know. For some reason, rasdaemon was not working for me (I honestly do not remember why), so I decided to recompile my kernel with CONFIG_X86_MCELOG_LEGACY=Y and "recreate" (pull the old PKGBUILD from community) this package for some people (like me) that rasdaemon was not wokring properly for.

The project still seems to be somewhat active even if deprecated, the repo recieved 6 new tags since publishing 10 months ago. I don't expect this to get to official repos, that is why it is in AUR.

Do you think I should put bigger notice (yeah, currently there is none) that recompilation of kernel is needed?

mcelog has been deprecated and is replaced by rasdaemon. For more info see: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/55657
