    On My HP Elitebpook 2760p I installed antix 17 no problem and have run it for 12 months on this laptop, during installation it automagically recognised my i915 graphics and gave needed screen resolutions. When I tried a fresh install on same laptop with Antix 19 it didn’t recognise the i915 driver needed and I could only install Antix 19 using safe mode. My screen resolution was limited to 1024×768 from that point on. Can anyone give me some assistance on how to enable the i915 driver in Antix 19?

    Give us more details ie output of inxi -v8 will help.

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.
