      I’m using antix 17 base i386. Booting live CD, and editing for “ask”
      as vga option (because I have weird 1440×900 monitor) results in vga=ask
      token in grub.cfg when the OS is installed, and this is “no longer
      supported” and so the install fails to boot.

      I fixed by hitting ‘e’ to edit and grub boot script, deleting the
      characters vga=ask and then F10 to continue booting. I fixed permanently
      by changing /etc/default/grub and then running sudo update-grub:

      diff grub.bak grub
      9c9
      < GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”vga=ask quiet”

      > GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”vga=788 quiet”

      Suggestion: anything offered in booting the live CD successfully ought
      to result in a bootable OS when installed to hard disk. I’m thinking
      about those humble users coming from the monopoly microcomputer OS —
      we want them to have a great first experience.
      Thanks.
