Things you probably already know but:


glxinfo

lists details about OpenGL, the Xserver, and your graphics card



glxinfo | grep direct

tells you if you have direct 3d rendering


glxinfo | grep vendor

just your graphics card vendor

lspci | grep VGA

will show specific graphics card model

spent some time on google this morning and found this (my apoliges if you been here, done that) and there seems to be quite a bit of info on the subject. so here goes...

Do the Debian GNU/Linux device driver check (http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/) or look in their list of SiS (http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/SiS)
