A.6.2. cmdline (optional) - Perform Installation in Command Line Mode

Perform the installation in a completely non-interactive command line mode. Any prompts for interaction halts the install. This mode is useful on IBM System z systems with the x3270 terminal.


For a fully automatic installation, you must either specify one of the available modes (graphical, text, or cmdline) in the Kickstart file, or you must use the console= boot option as described in Section 8.2.3, “Console, Environment and Display Options”. Otherwise the system will halt and ask you to choose a mode.
