Okay, so an illegal instruction was reached, which can be caused by two things:
You have an old CPU that doesn’t support AES instructions
You have a CPU that supports those instructions, but they aren’t being exposed to the virtual machine.
First case is quite complicated, as we currently make use of AES instructions during key generation, and we will have to release a future version that supports CPUs without these instructions. If you have another machine with a CPU that supports them, then you can just try there.
Second case is about enabling these instructions to be accessible to the VM. So you want to search “how to enable aes cpu instructions on …” with the virtualization software you are using.
First of all, thanks for the kind support in this community!
Indeed, the AES instructions have not been exposed to the virtual machine.
I managed to make this work by updating virtualbox.
Now, AES instructions are available, as you can see in the console output.
