    virtual terminal won't scroll

    I recently installed ubuntu and I can't get the virtual terminal to scroll up or down trying page up and down. They also wouldn't work with the addition of shift. Mousewheel obviously isn't supported in virtual terminal. How is it that you scroll?
    My computer is awesome.

    Shift+PgUp/PgDown works on every proper Linux VT I've ever seen.

    Unless screen is running. Oh, and if you switch the VT, the kernel forgets the back buffer.
    All the buzzt!
