    Hello,
    I have an old HP-mini 2133 with a Via CN896/VN896/P4M900 [Chrome 9 HC] (rev 01) graphic card. During installation the resolution was 800×480, very bad. After installing I just modified the xorg.conf file using openchrome driver. The resolution is now 1024×768. It looks great but bigger than the screen and I can’t see the panel.
    I tried by multiple ways to trick the xorg.conf. But nothing gives me the right resolution, 1024×600.
    I tried to add this option in grub, and I tried this page: https://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/hp_2133_mininote
    Nothing is working. Any idea?

    Alt with a left click will let you drag opened box windows so you can get the border on small net book screens.

    I* seem to remember I ran my 9 inch screens in 1024×600 though. Lets check

    Graphics:
      Device-1: Intel Mobile 945GSE Express Integrated Graphics 
      vendor: Elite Systems driver: i915 v: kernel bus ID: 00:02.0 
      Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.4 driver: intel 
      unloaded: fbdev,modesetting,vesa resolution: 1024x600~53Hz 
      OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel 945GME x86/MMX/SSE2 v: 1.4 Mesa 18.3.6 
      direct render: Yes 

    I know I was not running a via setup but them small screen net books seem to work good on 1024×600
    My thread; https://www.antixforum.com/forums/topic/ma-companion-xecure/

    Edit: also know you want 1024 x 600 with the open chrome driver and a created /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    harry@biker:~
    $ cd /etc/X11
    harry@biker:/etc/X11
    $ ls
    app-defaults             icewm    Xloadimage    Xreset.d    Xsession.options
    default-display-manager  rgb.txt  xorg.conf.d   Xresources  xsm
    fluxbox                  xinit    xorg.conf.in  Xsession    XvMCConfig
    fonts                    xkb      Xreset        Xsession.d  Xwrapper.config
    

    Something I have not used in a while. Good luck. Are you running full or base?

    I’ll also mention. Every full iso since antiX 8.5 on live boot before install. Gave me line readout of

    Either wait or hit key to select screen resolutions on boot.

    I finally figured out to wait and antiX always defaulted to 1024X600 on my netbooks. Every time I chose not to wait and decided to try my hand on the other option. I would screw the pooch.

    Sorry, I forgot there’s also a special build based on antiX 19.3 i386-base from member Xecure with an older Xorg which might worth a try.
