Description

Test the non-interactive cmdline output mode. This mode simply prints out text and does not allow any interactivity. All options must be specified either in a kickstart file or on the command line.


How to test

  1. Prepare a valid kickstart file. For help creating a kickstart file, examine the file /root/anaconda-ks.cfg on a previously installed system. This file contains the kickstart instructions used to install that system. For additional guidance on kickstart syntax, see Anaconda/Kickstart.
  2. Boot the installer with the command-line option cmdline as well as ks argument to load the kickstart file

Expected Results

  1. Anaconda completes successfully
  2. Anaconda does not stop and prompt for user input
  3. Reboot successfully into installed system
