As I have not got any log from any one, I will share my side of log to show,

Host - Windows 10.
Processor - AMD Ryzen7 2700X
Vm - Runnning under VMWare workstation 15.5.6 (VM with ubuntu 18.04.4 with nested virtualization from VMWARE )

Now let's look at environment in VM -

$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS
Release: 18.04
Codename: bionic

/usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 --version
QEMU emulator version 3.1.0 (Debian 1:3.1+dfsg-2ubuntu3)
Copyright (c) 2003-2018 Fabrice Bellard and the QEMU Project developers

And under that qemu 3.1.0 arista veos latest relese just works -

localhost#show version
Hardware version:
Serial number:
Hardware MAC address: 0caf.b2c2.a308
System MAC address: 0caf.b2c2.a308

Software image version:
Architecture: i686
Internal build version:
Internal build ID: cf3ba327-e192-46b4-8e8e-4aeaee798dd2

Uptime: 0 weeks, 0 days, 0 hours and 4 minutes
Total memory: 2014424 kB
Free memory: 1363364 kB

Anyone with more expertise with linux, can help me what is the log in qemu-wrapper used by eveng-community and why it just fails for vmware and qemu.

For me clearly - it is not that vmware workstation that does not support nested virtualization vm with qemu version higher than 2.

For me it is clearly eve-ng vm who does not support qemu higher than version 2 with AMD processors.

Uldis: Sorry for being slow, but is there anything that does not work with newer AMD processors?

I am currently using EVE-NG in proxmox (which I can see is not officially supported) with nested virtualization, now running on Intel Xeon-D.
Does this mean it is now safe to upgrade the system to an AMD Ryzen/Threadripper/EPYC system, or are there still things/images/virtualized systems etc not working on AMD that I need to be aware of? Is there any way to check which processors are supported/not supported if not all processors are?
