A.6.7. text (optional) - Perform Installation in Text Mode

Perform the Kickstart installation in text mode. Kickstart installations are performed in graphical mode by default.


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.
