Strange MXCSR messages?
I enabled "nata" support on one of my boxes lately, and now my
/var/log/messages gets flooded with entries like this:
kernel: pid 54403 (icecast) signal return from user: illegal FP MXCSR
last message repeated 24 times
kernel: pid 9033 (mysqld) signal return from user: illegal FP MXCSR
last message repeated 7 times
This seems to go on and on forever, but besides this spam from
syslogd, everything works okay.
I re-built the icecast and mysql packages and re-installed them, but
these messages still keep coming up.
I also found it's pretty hard to get information about this "MXCSR"
stuff, so if someone could give me a short explanation...? As far as I
can tell, it's some kind of register stuff.
Like I said, everything works fine, but it's somehow annoying anyway,
and believe adjusting syslogd's log level isn't the right way to fix
this -- although I don't believe it's a bug.
Enjoy the show
