I have a fresh debian jessie server installed in a virtual machine and I want to be able to scroll back with Shift+PageUp and see the full long output of commands like "apt search browser". At the moment I can only see about 5 pages worth of scrolling.
I tryied the following to increase the scrollback buffer size:
/etc/default/grubthen doing a
update-grub, as explained here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/709697/how-to-increase-scrollback-lines-in-ubuntu14-04-2-server-edition and https://askubuntu.com/questions/790804/how-to-set-unlimited-scrolling-on-a-tty ; However after updating the grub and rebooting the scrollback buffer has the same size. What else should I do to be able to scrollback longer?
UPDATE: I found out that I have no framebuffer enabled (there is not /dev/fb0 available) ... now I try to figure out how to enable it
