vxconf gives me a way to use the graphics, but the resolution stays at 1024 x 786 :-(

This may indicate you need to install drivers for your video chip.  Post the output of 'lspci |grep -i vga'

Can you check if you have a file named /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf ?
or simply post the output of 'ls /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/'

List of directory:
Code: [Select]
root:# ls /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
20-intel.conf  20-intel.conf.disabled

Same content in both files:
Code: [Select]
Section "Device"
   Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
   Driver      "intel"
   Option      "AccelMethod"  "uxa"
EndSection

OK.
Try rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
you may need to reboot or at least restart your x server.

See if that gives you any better results

Nope, sorry...

Restarting does not change nothing...
20-intel.conf is recreated during reboot...

I dont see how the file would be re-created during reboot.

This may provide more things you can try out

I don't now either, but I'm a Windows-Guy...
After deleting the file and restarting X, everything remains as before.
But after rebooting, the file is there again!
I will have a look at the suggested page, for now thanks a lot!

I did a few things...

reinstalled xf86-video-intel and all mesa-libs
removed 'vga=788' from kernel parameters
edited xorg.conf
build new 20-intel.conf
set AccelMethod to sna and back to uxa and wich parameter I could google


...but still no luck, stuck on SVGA
