How is dhclient is important while using VirtualBOX

Yes. its important if you want to have the internet connection for your Virtualbox.  For instance you have used the initial image with minimal and want to use yum later to upgrade then use the following steps

switch the user to root
run dhclient
Next use yum. if the commands are failing earlier will get passed.

This has killed me several hours of a day to understand and upgrade.

Virtual box

This is the issue that I have also faced with latest Linux distribution

This is the link that resolved me after 2 days of fight with installing Virtual box with Centos

root@localhost Downloads]# ls
[root@localhost Downloads]# rpm -ivh
error: not an rpm package (or package manifest):
[root@localhost Downloads]# ls -lrt
total 82080

[root@localhost Downloads]# file POSIX shell script text executable
[root@localhost Downloads]# chmod 777
[root@localhost Downloads]# ./

Good link to trust and install the virtual box :

AMD-V is disabled in the BIOS (or by the host OS) (VERR_SVM_DISABLED).
