Step 30: Try to install Satori again after yum installation.

./ inputdriver

Step 31: Go to eth0 configuration and edit it.

Step 33: Change device config name as seth0.

cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/
mv ifcfg-eth0 ifcfg-seth0

Step 34: Turn off VM and go to Network Adapter Settings. Remove emulated device.
