  2. If you are not logged in as root, become superuser.

  3. Navigate to the directory where the installation program is located.

    cd installer-directory
  4. Start the installer with the following options:

    ./installer -nodisplay -noconsole -state statefile



    Suppress the graphical display. 


    Start the installer in silent mode, suppressing the user interface. 


    Use the specified state file as input to a silent installation.
