i have install slackware on my Desktop and i cannot start the X window. Therefore i'm using the dos screen or terminal to install or set up the slackware configuration.
Without Using the X window is tedious at this point when i hit error during installation and i need to go online to seek help. Therefore when my desktop terminal hits error, i have to take out my laptop, come in here and type the errors by hand while looking at my desktop monitor.
My question is how can i copy the error message when the installation hits error, so that the error message is saved into a file and i can mount my thumbdrive to copy the file from the desktop to my laptop so i can copy and paste the error message in here?
If you have gpm running in your console, then you can select text from the screen, then open an editor e.g.nano and paste the selection with a middle mouse click or Shift-Insert. Then save the the file.
