I'm trying to correct some GRUB2 and Plymouth display problems in 11.10 as part of an ongoing saga. I'm going to run the
vbeinfo command to check supported display modes, but unfortunately from what I can tell this command can only be run from GRUB2, and hence the output is only visible while the command is run in it.
I would like to keep a copy of the output for reference or sharing. Is it possible to save this output somewhere I can access it after logging in, and if so, how would I do it? Alternately, if it is not possible to save the output, then why not?
And because I know someone might answer with this: no, I do not have a camera handy to take a picture of my screen (besides my laptop's webcam, which is an awkward solution at best), and I would rather not write it all down on paper if I can help it.
