The following parameters can be defined in a parameter file but do not work in a CMS configuration file.
Where value is defined as 1 if you want to run the loader automatically on the Linux console without having to log in over the network with SSH. To use
RUNKS=1, the console must either support full-screen or the
cmdline option below should be used. The latter applies for the 3270 terminal under z/VM or the operating system messages console for LPAR. We recommend
RUNKS=1 for fully automatic installations with kickstart. When
RUNKS=1 is set, linuxrc automatically continues in case of parameter errors and does not interrupt unattended installations by prompting for user interaction.
Leave out the parameter or specify
cmdline is specified, output on line-mode terminals (such as 3270 under z/VM or operating system messages for LPAR) becomes readable, as the installer disables escape terminal sequences that are only applicable to UNIX-like consoles. This requires installation with a kickstart file that answers all questions, since the installer does not support interactive user input in cmdline mode.
