You can perform a silent installation, using the --mode unattended option from the command line:

./sample-installer.bin --mode unattended

This will perform an unattended installation that will not prompt the user for any information. Any required information can be passed to the installer using command line switches. This mode allows for easy integration of the installer into your own scripts. Unattended mode can also be used to easily integrate with the Ant build tool.

If you are interested in showing a minimal graphical progressbar while performing an unattended installation, you could also configure the --unattendedmodeui mode:

./sample-installer.bin --mode unattended --unattendedmodeui minimal

You can find additional information in this article.

Could you edit the link in this answer? Get the following: "The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded."
