    Same problem here.... sis mirage 3+ m671
    I noticed that in each next edition of ubuntu is more and more difficult to setup sis grapichs. 9.04 work best. Please make deb for 10.10. I try mandriva 2010 spring live CD - work out of the box. Can that be posible in ubuntu?

    I got this working thanks to a guy commenting this blog:

    http://diversosassuntosbrasil.blogsp...so-em-sis.html

    Just extract and copy the driver to /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers
    Then use the Device setting from the attached xorg.conf

    In the future, stay away from anything with SiS graphics. Just stick with nVidia, AMD/ATI, and Intel.

    @NHaGa

    Thanks for this info but, is there an English version of the blog? (sorry, I don't speak Portuguese) And also, I'm not that adept yet with Linux so, can you likewise give a more detailed, step-by-step procedure on how to install the sis driver? Oh, and by the way, does this driver have 3d acceleration support? Thanks!

    @Dark_Stang

    That would be the ideal. However, in my case, I don't have any choice. My laptop came with an Sis mirage video card. If it was a desktop PC, it would have been easy to replace the video card and I wouldn't have this problem.

    Just move the contents of the file sisimedia_drv.so.zip to /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers

    Then edit the the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf, go to the Section "Device" and change the Driver to "sisimedia"

    Reboot and that should do it...

    And this is just a 2d driver
