I'm recompiling my kernel to reinclude anything that I might have left out while slimming it earlier
EDAC stumps me, I cannot figure out whether it's supported or not, and if it is will it be useful without the userspace tools? is it reported in dmesg?

I tried enabling all the EDAC modules, on my PC the edac_core & edac_mce_amd modules were automatically loaded

I'm also trying to figure out where it is used & supported in my hardware (not only on RAM modules !)

probably an not so easy question to answer :lol:

take a look at:

https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/edac.txt

http://www.admin-magazine.com/Articles/Monitoring-Memory-Errors

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Error_detection_and_correction

localhost linux # dmesg | grep -E -i edac
[ 4.783781] EDAC MC: Ver: 3.0.0
[ 4.858498] AMD64 EDAC driver v3.4.0
[ 4.877397] EDAC amd64: DRAM ECC disabled.
[ 4.877442] EDAC amd64: ECC disabled in the BIOS or no ECC capability, module will not load.


I have the AMD modules loaded on my pc though
edac_core 39005 0
edac_mce_amd 12718 0


I skimmed though these documentations, Apparently I need ecc ram
