    just enough OS scrolling up the terminal window?


    I'm making a minimal linux system with suse studios. Everything is working fine and the system boot up in bash (I'm guessing it's bash). when I run a command that take up more than the whole window I can't see the whole out put because part of it is above the window and I can't scroll up. So is there a way to enable scrolling when linux is running just in bash?

    pipe the output to a pager of your choice.

    e.g.
    Code:
    ls -la |less
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
