Well I am still getting a few glitches.   Every so often (usually after a reboot)  I get vertical scrolling lines going down my screen.   Lowering the resolution and setting it back again seems to correct it , but it is annoying.  Plus when I enable the window manager tweaks the frequency of this issue increases substantially and I even start getting booted out to the user login screen.

See if commenting out the DRI lines at the bottom of xorg.conf is any help. Also wonder if this is the reason for the 16-bit depth suggestion.

Oddly enough it stopped when I tried enabling DPMS and it turns out it works properly on my 2133 Mini Note and the vertical line  issue has not occurred since I enabled DPMS.  Not sure why.  Either way I think we have this resolved.

I have a Mini Note 2133 with VIA onboard video.  When I install VL 6.0 Standard Gold and select the VIA driver for a 8.9 (which is what the 2133 has) inch screen the installer window takes up so much space I have to use the scroll bars and then once the install is complete and I boot into the xfce desktop I end up with a screen resolution of 640x480 and there are no other resolutions available in the display settings.   If I select the setting for a 15 or 17 monitor during install I get 1024x768 which is useable.   

My question is does anyone know why the VIA driver will only give me 640x480 and is there a way I can get at least 1024x768 to work with the VIA driver?
Did you install the drivers for this hardware? :'(

That is affirmative. :-)   I have the openchrome driver for my VIA onboard video installed and working perfectly now.
