Kernel panic shm

ok it looks like the issue is Redhat 8.

this from redhats documentation

IVSHMEM has been disabled

The inter-VM shared memory device (IVSHMEM) feature, which provides shared memory between multiple virtual machines, is now disabled in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8. A virtual machine configured with this device will fail to boot. Similarly, attempting to hot-plug such a device device will fail as well.

Maybe not a bad idea to try a different distro then.
Something like Debian, Ubuntu based or Open Suse.
