How to scroll in text mode?

I recently learned that one can scroll up (and down) in Linux when in text mode in order to view output that has scrolled off the screen. How do I do it in Fedora? I’ve tried Shift + Up/Down, Shift + Fn + Up/Down and Fn + Shift + Up/Down but to no avail. Thanks!

In case the particular laptop model matters, my Fedora 32 Workstation installation is on a Lenovo Yoga S740-14IIL.

P.S. I am aware of solutions such as tmux but would not like to use them.

This may have already been backported in the current Fedora kernel.
In that case, there’s only external tools left.

Interesting, that explains why I have been able to scroll in Ubuntu/Lubuntu 20.04 LTS on my other two machines which are running the 5.4.x kernel and probably do not have this latest change backported. I guess that means screen/tmux is my new friend then.
