Details

Description:

With AMD SME turned on (mem_encrypt=on), VirtualBox doesn't work.

I've tried everything I could to report this to Oracle, because they have a bug tracker for VirtualBox. Unfortunately, my account is blocked, their account validation E-mails don't work and their helpdesk doesn't respond. Perhaps someone with a similar issue (and a working Oracle account) could post this into their bug tracker.


Additional info:

* package version(s)

virtualbox 6.1.16-1
virtualbox-ext-oracle 6.1.16-1

* config and/or log files etc.

The system is an ASRock x570 Creator with Ryzen 3950X, latest firmware.

* link to upstream bug report, if any

N/A, because I can't file one. Oracle's account management is broken and I'm locked out.

Steps to reproduce:

* Enable AMD SME (mem_encrypt=on).
* Try to start a VirtualBox VM.

The problem is still around with kernel 5.10.16, but the error messages are now different. There's a NX bit violation and other interesting stuff.

I do not have AMD hardware, thus can not reproduce it.
Still hoping for anybody else to report it upstream.
Comment by Andrej Podzimek (andrej) - Monday, 15 February 2021, 14:08 GMT
Just for the record, I’ve found a workaround (sort of).

I’ve just bitten the bullet and reinstalled the VM in virt-manager. With virt-manager, everything works fine with AMD SME, no freezes / crashes, virtio drivers for block devices even work fine there (instead of crashing the VM like in VirtualBox) and, in general, a few other things work better. So it looks like virt-manager is an option here.

Graphics are a pain point though. VirtualBox has way faster graphics with at least a sign of acceleration. In virt-manager this is not the case. Graphics are ultra-slow (especially on my 5k monitors). I even tried to give the VM my NVidia eGPU, but that didn’t work well either; it would only work with a separate monitor connected to the NVidia, so it won’t do any GPU switching / prime magic. That’s not exactly seamless.
