17.3. Installation in Non-Interactive Line Mode

If the inst.cmdline option was specified as a boot option in your parameter file (see Section 20.4, “Parameters for Kickstart Installations”) or the cmdline option was specified in your Kickstart file (see Chapter 26, Kickstart Installations), Anaconda starts with non-interactive text line mode. In this mode, all necessary information must be provided in the Kickstart file. The installation program will not allow user interaction and it will stop if any required commands are missing.
