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 RUNKS=0 otherwise.
When 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.
