In centos how do you answer yes automatically for yum install so that it is an unassisted install?

You can use:

yum -y install packagename

The "-y" implies "yes".

    Or, if you don't like memorizing the right way to get "yes" into every program, just use yes | yum .... – David Schwartz Oct 25 '12 at 5:23

Add the following line to /etc/yum.conf

assumeyes=1

    Shouldn't that be assumeyes=1 to prevent yum from prompting for confirmations? – HBruijn Jan 3 '17 at 11:01
