Copying what I see on my screen


I’m runnig VyOS as KVM/QEMU and I am trying to document something.

Can I somehow copy what I see on my screen? How?
I mean as text.

Maybe it’s possible if connect via serial port with minicom or screen?

Yes, that’s a good idea. But now I am realizing I can do something even easier I did not even think of… ssh

Thank you!

If you are running qemu from the cli you could add the --no-graphics option, that will make ttyS0 to be pushed to stdin/out on the console that started qemu. :slight_smile: The only thing to note about this is that qemu will be blocking until it exits.

Thank you the tip runar. But just by sshing into VyOS worked for me.
