Unable to start 64 bit vm with 3.1.2

Reported by: KeyzerSuze Owned by:
Priority: major Component: VM control
Version: VirtualBox 3.1.2 Keywords: vt-x
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Linux



VB keeps saying it can't start VM because VT-x is not available

I have upgraded to 3.1.2 from 3.0.8 (from your debian repository)

head -n 8 /proc/cpuinfo processor : 0 vendor_id : AuthenticAMD cpu family : 16 model : 4 model name : AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 945 Processor stepping : 2 cpu MHz : 800.000 cache size : 512 KB

and I have it turned on in my bios (this used to work with 3.0.8)

I have attached Vbox.log

Done some more investigating looking at SUPDrvAgnostic.c /* $Revision: 53448 $ */ (in svn it looks like it has changed to SUPDrv.c).

The error I get when I attempt to start a vt-x vm is Unknown error creating VM (VERR_VMX_NO_VMX).

when I do a search for this in the driver it comes up on line 218 which seems to be relevant only to intel cpus ?

The log file states the error VERR_SVM_IN_USE. Do you have the KVM kernel module loaded?

I should have checked from the begining of the log file, only looked at the end!

when I tried this in 3.1 I rolled back to 3.0 and everything just work steps reboot , login , start vm. with 3.1 it just doesn't work. I have done quick check of lsmod and don't see anything that might be the problem
