I tried the apt update, apt full-upgrade and apt-get dist-upgrade hoping it solves the driver installation issues, I was using rfkill, removing /dev/rfkill and many stuff u can check out over internet about unable to start the wlan0, it can’t get up.
Also I can’t add native screen resolution of this laptop, always say something about gamma stuff, experience tell me it is driver stuff, because video also run slowly, while in browser runs even slower and very bad quality. Xrandr failed to change it and it keeps the resolution I did pick when I did install the distro.
If anyone got any idea this far, something to try or do, besides resetting bios and these stuff that I already tried, show up them in this topic

For the graphics, I suggest searching what might help. Roky (and others) have Intel Atom based systems. I don’t have one, but when I have to run VESA, it’s usually low res.
One solution I found that looks promising is https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/lubuntu-meta/+bug/1575460:
ajgreeny (ajg-charlbury) wrote on 2016-06-16: #13 I had the same problem as Camilo Gonzalez in post #5, on a netbook with Atom 270 cpu and Intel 954M graphics. Solved by booting with nomodeset option from the grub menu to get a low resolution GUI and then installing the xserver-xorg-video-intel package. All works very well now.
The other one I found that looks promising is from Debian https://wiki.debian.org/GraphicsCard I like the one where they say:
Intel If your graphic card is etc. 2007 and newer, try uninstalling xserver-xorg-video-intel and use the builtin modesetting driver (xserver-xorg-core) instead.

For the WiFi network, it looks like it found a driver. It isn’t clear in your post if you first tried to use Connman to connect or not?
From a fresh boot if possible, I would suggest you look for the Network Monitor pager window (3rd monitor to the left of the clock), and you should be able to just left click it to bring up the Connman program. Once you bring it up, see if Wireless is enabled, and if not, enable it and hopefully double click the right connection if it appears after a scan. Once you connect to it, it should remember that connection. You coulds also access it by running Control Centre, Network, WiFi Connect Connman,

If how to handle connman is not your problem and because you said you already tried rfkill, what’s the output of
xserver-xorg-video-intel should be installed by default on antiX19, but it’s not used in this case
You can try to force it.

Hi responsible ppl, caprea I made the textfile and it has a slighty change from the last time on video quality, I am not fully sure if its working at all; I believe this whole thing is a chipset stuff, I can only run linux in this laptop if I disable acpi.
The captures uploaded are how looks like the wireless configuration, funny thing the bluetooth is showed but if I activate it, the led doesn’t lit, and I can’t activate it either way physically or via command, when I run to terminal, it means common ui doesn’t work.
I don’t know how to change the grub stuff, and I believe it will not solve my issues, I just use now a lower dpi and stick with it, but to watch a video is kinda awful and it shouldn’t be that wrong. There’s no way to start up the wlan0. I could blame the motherboard for such errors, because I was unable to install any OS than this one till now (acpi off), so Idk wut to do, this OS gimme the option to install the drivers (wireless) using an inf file, I’ve no idea how to do that, since this has no windows partition anymore, no backup could be done.
So, if anyone gots already their fingers into this mess, shoot some answer and I gonna try as much as I can, otherwise I’d start to do random stuff since tutorials on net didn’t work for me. Kind regards.

with screen resolution typed in I wanted to try after wards The command
Would inform me what screen resolutions were supplied with the graphics driver being used. I have not tried AntiX 19 yet on any of my single core atom netbooks yet.
Having too much fun outside of computer land lately.

$ xrander -s
bash: xrander: orden no encontrada
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 800 x 600, current 800 x 600, maximum 800 x 600

I would like to know if I’ll be able to use wireless, also the bluetooth cuz I never know. I can’t resize to higher resolution and hd videos rly run slow, I dunno wut else to do but I tried all the comments this far. I ran today a ‘tails’ usb drive distro in this computer, I wasn’t able to start it but pushing the buttons I was able to turn on the bluetooth that way but not the wireless.
When shutting down the computer it doesn’t shutdown the screen, the system halt and stay the whole thing there. If anyone feels free to make a brainstorm, I’d like to read more ideas (I tried already several stuff over net about this gamma point and resolution with no luck); I’ll check time to time and keep going with wut I’m learning.

I think you need to resolve the boot and screen resolution first.
If nobody here has an answer, I would suggest trying to get it running on Debian or MX linux, as there are more people running those and antiX is based on them. Once you find out what you need to do to get it to boot and run Debian or MX, you can try that same solution for antiX.September 16, 2019 at 10:33 am #27215MemberSome1
I ran a live usb from this linux tails and its 64 bits, it did showed up intel pineview M driver and it matched it native resolucion 1024×600; I was minding on backing drivers (dunno how) from there to move them to antiX but the thing is, I’m running a 32bit OS version of antiX 19, maybe that’s the main conflict, I already did an apt full upgrade and dist-upgrade, maybe I am not using the right repositories to get the intel drivers correctly to that kind of laptop/computer.
That was about the screen driver, about the wireless and bluetooth, I had no luck on any distro to start it up, its blocked completely or even say airplane mode, only way to unlock it is using key shotcuts (Fn + F2, and these stuff) but those didn’t work, I’m minding on re-upading bios but the battery doesn’t work anymore and these programs ask a battery to be attached (wich is fine due electrical cuts running here).
So, the network drivers are identified, wired driver works just fine. But intel website has no support for linux drivers, and the website related that it was 01.org or something like that didn’t seems to be alive anymore. So, I’ll keep looking forward.

Would like to get some feedback
I made the textfile and it has a slighty change from the last time on video quality, I am not fully sure if its working at all
After you made these changes it is easy to see if it switches to the intel-driver by looking at
Also still missing
I agree with BobC, it could be a good idea to try MX-Linux and possibly to ask there in the forum as well.September 16, 2019 at 1:25 pm #27222Forum Adminrokytnji
I’ll also mention when I take the time out to pour over the
sudo cat /var/log/dmesg
readout contents after 1st booting up. It sometimes tells me what has gone wrong.September 17, 2019 at 12:57 am #27226MemberSome1
A potentially unsafe operation has been detected in your request to this site.
I uploaded these commands given by u guys into a text file, check it out. I’ll be testing stuff, so thx in advance. I’ll be done if we pull the wireless to make it work.

Yeah. Spam filters are aggressive on this site .
How I handle text files is to link em over here
They give you a link to show your file you uploaded. I have stored personal stuff there years on my free account there. One does not need a account/register to use it though.September 18, 2019 at 12:36 pm #27266MemberSome1
Click here to read the full text file on text.
I don’t konw why the intel driver for video isn’t activated, still reinstalling the xorg server stuff and these command listed by all of you. Keep posting ideas, I’ll be pleased to read them all.

Thanks, this gives some more insight.
phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: yes
Your wlan is hardblocked. That normally means it’s physically switched off.
The laptop should have a switch where the wlan can be switched on and off, sometimes it’s also a Fn-key plus another key.Are you sure wlan is turned on?
Indeed it is still using the vesa-driver.
Does the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
with the changes from the How-To exist on your system ?
Edit: What also comes to my mind is if it could help with your laptop to use the following boot parameters

Worked my way up from the bottom since caprea covered the top errors.
Bluetooth looks soft blocked also.
Webcam is working though.`
[ 1.504455] platform rtc_cmos: registered platform RTC device (no PNP device found)
[ 1.504656] simple-framebuffer simple-framebuffer.0: framebuffer at 0x40000000, 0xeb000 bytes, mapped to 0xf8000000

Nothing really there for errors that just jump out at me that I can see.
I find it weird also that vesa cannot handle 1024×768 on intel chip either.
So I am lost here. Edit: My bad for not noticing this is antix 19 beta 3 thread. It should have have went over here https://www.antixforum.com/forums/topic/antix-19-b3-full-and-base-versions-64-and-32-bit-available/
