Linux Console Scrolling

A simple, but extremely useful, tip…I didn’t know about it for a long time, but now that I do it’s quite helpful.

In most linux consoles, including RHEL and it’s derivatives, SUSE, and Ubuntu (these are the ones I’ve tried) you can scroll up and down to view the console history by holding the Shift key and using Page Up/Page Down.

Unfortunately, it does not work with the cDOT console.
