Scroll console output on FreeBSD

People coming from Linux will find that they can’t scroll back through the console output the same way on FreeBSD.

In FreeBSD you need to press “Scroll Lock” and use the arrow keys, PageUp and PageDown to be able to scroll backwards and forwards the console output. To go back to the prompt press “Scroll Lock” again.

sudo owns me!

Today I installed sudo on my freeBSD test server. Typed a wrong password and got: You type like i drive. owned! That is a difference from freeBSD to linux sudo

sudo -s also works.

sudo also has an insult mode, which will question your intelligence if you enter a password in wrong.
