    The only I could run Ubuntu 8.10 on my D201GLY2, I did the following:

    Here is how I solved my issue:

    I upgraded from Hardy to Intrepid to get a newer kernel and get rid of the kernel freeze.

    I then downgraded Xorg from 7.4 to 7.3 to have my sis driver working.
    The downgrade process is nicely explained here:

    thanks @mhgsys
    I also had to change the BIOS settings for my video card memory (I set 32 MB instead of 128 MB). Finally it works fine.

    Hi

    I'm new here, was running xubuntu 8.10/64, coming from fc8, and I received the 2d 32-bit driver from Barros Lee, installed and suddenly my reading glasses are less needed

    Thanks Barros Lee!

    For those as me with more than 3GB of memory, don't cry...

    click here to access the area of my site where I explain what to do

    Meanwhile and since I believe this is a kernel issue I filed a bug here

    Cheers

    Antonio

    Excellent, that worked! However, how do I make sure that my xorg and related packages are not automatically upgraded?

    The DailyVim page says:
    The final step is to go into synaptic and lock the reinstalled packages to avoid the upgrade manager from nagging.
    I can't tell you exactly what I did in Synaptic but that was rather intuitive (right click something).
    Those packages won't be proposed for future updates.

    Happy it helped.

    So im guessing With software rasterizer
    And no replies to my previous post

    Compiz on a 771/671 graphics chipset is a lost cause ?

    Running compiz doesn't work because there are no 3d drivers for the sis mirage 771/671
    You could say it's a lost cause.


    And hope for a 3d driver,
    I know I do.
    When your thread it solved: go to thread tools > Mark this thread as solved
    for SIS 771/671 use xcompmgr to have transparent terminals. just load it at startup.

    And then they asked: what's a pbkac error?

    Can't everyone with a laptop / desktop with SIS components all file complaints all at once to the SIS website... Would be awesome, and might kick them in the *** to release it.

    Hi

    Took me long enough but I finally got around to it.

    Below is a beta version of sis 771/671 driver package for Ubuntu Jaunty. Now with working 2D Acceleration (XAA).

    As before - simply install the deb package and make sure that your xorg.conf is the one provided by the system (no modifications required).
