apt-get install svgatextmode
and then, of course
and so forth.

Looking for a way to CAPTURE A TRANSCRIPT OF SOME COMMANDS?
Easy! To catch anything from the screen when it scrolls by,
exit <== don't forget this!
(It spawns another shell, and displays everything so you can
work -- but it also saves the output in the file at the same
time.) Then "pager file-*transcript*" to review it. Or email it.
Or edit it for inclusion in a manual you're writing.
