Is it possible to increase the terminal (CENT OS) application buffer size to "infinite" scrollback via a sh script?
I can find ways of manually changing the buffer size but was wondering if there is a way to add the command to the beginning of a script.

I'm working on a laptop installation script and trying to keep the manual steps to a minimum but found out yesterday I'm loosing half my output due to the default buffer size.

I can always setup to output to a log file but wanted to check if this was possible first.
