I keep getting a warning every time I switch to root.

ABRT has detected 'x' problems(s). For more info run arbt-cli list.

And 'arbt-cli list' lists the same problem over and over again:

id b34c40c7bb83544557c2f0e9159dac1b6f0fe248

There was only one time in which there was a different problem that occured:

I do not know what to make of this.

I installed CentOS 7 on a Inspiron 7000 50 Gaming. It's brand new, so I don't understand why it would be having hardware problems already.


A Machine Check Exception (MCE) is a type of computer hardware error that occurs when a computer's central processing unit detects a hardware problem.

If you didn't notice any crash, probably the error was successfully corrected. Still, you should install mcelog to keep track of such events:

sudo yum install mcelog -y

The events will be logged to /var/log/mcelog. You can also run:

sudo mcelog --client

The second error is coming from the initial-setup-gui- package.

systemctl disable initial-setup-text.service
