    How do I run vbeinfo to display by page?

    Hi

    I'm trying to work out how my Plymouth screen displays jumbled pixels. In GRUB2 I run vbeinfo but the output pages away so that I only see the end of the report.

    Do I need to pipe the command through something so that I can show the whole of the report or are there some key strokes that enable me to navigate the whole report?
    Itch: Think Hula hoop, positive on top, negative on bottom, roll it. Is it a wave or a particle? Is it a photon? Is a photon a dipole? Are we all made of light!

    Yep:
    Code:
    vbeinfo | less
    Use the arrow keys to scroll the page & q to quit.
