I'm running a Linux guest on a Linux host with kvm -display curses. I'm not able to scroll back with Shift-PageUp. Is there an even simpler display than curses which just prints to the host terminal, so I can use the host terminal's scrollback feature?


I could solve it with a serial console. Instead of

kvm -display curses -append '...'

I used:

kvm -nographic -append '... console=ttyS0 earlyprintk=serial'
