termux powerline status configuration

termux is a terminal emulator and Linux environment on Android. To make it even better (looks), enable powerline-status. Start by installing git on termux, like:

x1@x1-pc:~$ pkg install git

Then clone termux-style, like:
x1@x1-pc:~$ git clone https://github.com/adi1090x/termux-style.git
x1@x1-pc:~$ cd termux-style
x1@x1-pc:~$ chmod +x setup
x1@x1-pc:~$ ./setup
x1@x1-pc:~$ termux-style

Then install Python, like:
x1@x1-pc:~$ pkg install python

Next up, install powerline-status, like:
x1@x1-pc:~$ pip install powerline-status

Update ~/.bash_profile to load powerline-status, like:

Mouse cursor disappers inside the VirtualBox VM when installing CentOS 7

Tried to create a VM using CentOS 7 ISO on VirtualBox 6. The VM booted fine and showed WELCOME TO CENTOS 7 screen, the issue is that clicking inside the VM would cause the mouse cursor to disapper. The VM is still usable but you have to use the keyboard to navigate the OS. To workaround the issue, shutdown the VM and change the settings System | Pointing Device to USB Tablet.

CentOS 7 networking not working on VirtualBox

It seems like this is by design (for security?) that CentOS 7 does not have networking working by default. Anyway, to fix this on VM running VirtualBox, edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-enp0s3 and change the line that says ONBOOT=no to ONBOOT=yes and then reboot the machine.
