Hey all,

When I search files avaliable via yum; yum search games,
hundreds seem to turn up, but when I scroll back up there only seems to be from the letter
W up to the letter Z and the rest have wiped as they search was displaying.

I tryed pushing the Pause/ Break button, but that dosn't seem to work.

Any suggestions on how to pause the search or make it show ALL the avaliable
files rather then wiping the records as it searches?

Cheers,
Streets.

I always pipe results to a file if I expect lot of results:


yum search [term] > [filename]

Hello:
You can do a few of things

yum search games | less
to allow you to move through the output with your up /down keys in the terminal

or to output to a text file [gamesearch] [As pete_1967 noted]

yum search games >> /home/username/gamesearch

or
install yumex
and use yumex to search

Also, just so you know, you can usually set the scrollback on most terminals like gnome-terminal and Konsole, look in preferences and max it out. ;)
