Check out the 'script(1)' utility  man script
If you invoke it with a file name, it will write all terminal stuff
to a file.  I almost always use it when I do a major build because
it is impossible to catch stuff as it flies by on the screen.

You can invoke it for the duration of a specific command or you
can just start it on your interactive terminal session and then
stop it when you are finished with it.
