Does it work with Intrepid? Or is it just for Hardy?Hi,
I got my Intelbrás notebook i21 working in 1280x800 with this driver.
For those who did'nt find the solution yet, you can follow this steps to install the driver:
- Extract the files, then go to the folder
- Copy sis_drv.so and sis_drv.la from usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers to /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/, replacing the existing files
- Copy the etc/X11/xorg.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf, replacing the existing file (make a backup before!!!)
IMPORTANT: xorg.conf that comes with the sisdrv-ubuntu-8.04.tar.gz has the keybord configuration for Brazilian language, you can take the correct configuration for your keyboard from your backedup xorg.conf
- Restart X
You can try this driver with other distros, but i don't know if works.
This the result of lspci:
VGA compatible controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 771/671 PCIE VGA Display Adapter (rev 10)
Tanks to GDH Press: Blog, all this information i got from them.
