Vertica on VMWare with unsupported AMD CPU


I started installing Vertica 7.1 on a VMWare VM (Ubuntu) that has AMD K10 CPU's.

During installation we got the following error:


CPU not supported!


Starting Machine Check Exceptions decoder: CPU is unsupported


Valid CPUs: generic p6old core2 k8 p4 dunnington xeon74xx xeon7400 xeon5500 xeon5200 xeon5000 xeon5100 xeon3100 xeon3200 core_i7 core_i5 core_i3 nehalem westmere xeon71xx xeon7100 tulsa intel xeon75xx xeon7500 xeon7200 xeon7100 sandybridge sandybridge-ep ivybridge ivybridge-ep ivybridge-ex haswell


Current CPU: AMD K10

vendor_id       : AuthenticAMD

cpu family      : 16

model           : 9

model name      : AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 6128 HE


Does anybody know if there is any workaround that we can use to install Vertica on this VM? Is there another version that supports K10?

Many thanks!


Note ******

I just find out this is because AMD does not support mcelog on recent CPU's anymore. Instead they should be using the edac_mce_amd module.

Does Vertica support using this module? Or does it REALLY need to have mcelog working?
