How do you force a terminal to remain open? (Or see what it said before)
 
I'm trying to install DSL on a computer and everytime I run the install to hard drive I do a few questions and then I think an error occurs. Something flashes up in the terminal and then it closes before I have time to read it. Is there someway to force the terminal to remain open? Or just as good would be some log of what was in the terminal. If I could figure out either way it would be great. Thanks much.

Some terminal emulators have specific support for this, for example urxvt (rxvt-unicode)

Code:

urxvt -hold -e ls /
