    It has been fixed already so just install all updates and you'll be good to go.
    I'm doing this now.

    And thanks for all help you gave me!

    And you too, mhgsys!

    EDIT: I confirm the driver function after upgrading.

    By the way here I found this. The script outputs:

    Code:

    There has been (at least) one error detected with your setup:
     Error: Software Rasterizer in use
    Seems SiS driver IS capable to run Compiz.

    So what's this Software Rasterizer anyway?

    @cybarian

    The software rasterizer is generally a hint that the driver is either not set up correctly or not properly working at all.

    It will be running true cpu, not gpu,
    For on idea between the difference,

    lol.

    Seriously, If we want to be able to run compiz smoothly we need a 3d driver.
    There even is a way to enable compiz on the sis 671/771, but it will use cpu, and it will be running very very slow.

    Try this:
    1- Add to your Xorg.conf in Device:
    Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"

    2- Install and run Compiz Check. Look at -> http://forlong.blogage.de/article/pages/Compiz-Check
    You'll be prompted to skip Compiz white list check, say "yes"

    3- Install "xserver-xgl" from synaptic.

    4- Write Compiz in a terminal.

    Let me know your results, but my GLXGEARS drop from -already poor- 350 to 120 with Normal effects and to 75 with Extras.
    Good luck
    So, In my opinion running compiz on sis 771/671 doesn't work, until a decent 3d driver is released.

    for SIS 771/671 use xcompmgr to have transparent terminals. just load it at startup.

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

    add to etc/x11/xconf.org to the Section "Monitor"
    HorizSync 30-107
    VertRefresh 50-185


    now it just work fine with 1280x768.


    thx somnus07

    If you have the newest Ubuntu 9.04, which i strongly sudgest, download, and double click on this debian package (.deb)- http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...&postcount=119. Afterwards restart you X.org (program that displays your desktop) by loggin out and logging in or restatting your computer.

    Re: SiS 771/671 Mirage 3 Video Drivers!?!?

    Dear all,
    I'd 1 shot post contain below at almost all manufacturer email, hope this pressure can make SIS's 3D driver come out.
    It was send to quit a lot of big player at this url:
    http://www.sis.com/support/support_tech.htm#

    Due to it really hard for me to locate every company email (Because slow internet). Hope others member can contact others manufacturer in list above for request the driver too.

    Hi Sir/Madam,

    Today I write this message for you because of there is a lot of demand for SIS display card driver for Linux users, including my sister laptop. If you are not the person in charge about this issue, I hope you can forward this email to suitable person.

    To SIS management
    ==========
    I know that there is agreement between your company and your customer about your company shall not release opengl driver to end user directly. From a few web site/forum I know that your company already develop this driver (3D) quite sometimes. Linux users is appreciate the existing 2D driver from SIS, however it is not sufficient since their need working 3D driver for fully utilize their computer. I hope your company can imagine that a brand new computer with sufficient capacity cannot run smoothly simply because of small driver issue. Lot of Linux user will throw a way their laptop (SIS chipset) and baned SIS product permanently instead of install Ms Windows inside. If your company don't have any existing Linux driver, we hope SIS can develop suitable driver as soon as possible.

    Why don't your company release the driver to your customer? I guess let your customer distribute the Linux driver to end user directly is not harm to your company? The driver really can't give you any revenue if your company simple keep it inside a spider web. Even though Linux user is less, but we still spend our money (we earn money really hard) and buy computer or laptop. I hope your company willing to let your indirect customer happy instead of let them angry with SIS.

    To all company who use SIS chipset
    ===========================
    Hope all company who deal with SIS chipset concern about this email. It is a market complain!
    Initialy I know that your company may not support Linux OS. However some of your customer is frusting when using your company laptop/desktop. You can help them a lot simply via request the 3D display driver from SIS and publish it at your website. There is alot of reason why Linux users not using Microsoft Windows (Like viruses, job requirement and etc). In fact, some of them been force to use Linux OS. Here I'm sincerely request your company please don't let Linux user down and grant their wish. It is really shame let the consumer writing driver themself.


    Below is forum talking about this issue:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=615094&page=20
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...light=SiS+M672

    Hope your company can think twice this complain.
