    Remember to remove any driver names and such from xorg conf manualy or by typing
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg in terminal.
    This version is for Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex. If for some reason the driver is nod detected automatically, add the line
    Code:
    Driver "sis671"
    to "Device" section of your xorg.conf

    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).

    /tmp/xorg-driver-sis671_0.9_i386.deb could not be saved, because you cannot change the contents of that folder.

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

    maybe it's not working cause you really don't have access to /tmp... who is the owner of that folder? are you running this as root? is root the owner of /tmp?have you tried to install it manually instead of using the .deb package? it's always better to compile from the source code and understand what you are doing on each step. "Step by step" tutorials are great when you are in a hurry, but not when you want to learn from the process

    good luck

    I cant still fix my video display in Ubuntu 9.04. I posted here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...is/+bug/301958 but nobody seems interested. Any idea?

    I've been a long time follower of these threads (pertaining the dreaded SiS Mirage 3) and it boggles the mind how the people at SiS can't release a simple Linux driver, which they've already developed...

    Anyways, my thanks go to bgerlich for making the 2D driver installer, it's probably the best thing we've got at the moment.

    SiS has released the SiS 650 and SiS 630 drivers! (HERE) I wonder if some of these could be modified for the SiS 671/672 ? They are of the same family, no?

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

    I've just installed the Jaunty driver on a fujitsu v5535 and the screen is now the correct resolution but the desktop is extremely unresponsive. I ran glxgears and only got an FPS of 16 sometimes up to 20.

    Compare that with my netbook where glxgears records FPS of 600+

    How do i fix this?

    Works fine for me!
    Important thing is to reset the xorg.conf if it has been changed previously (sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg).

    I have been working on this for a day!!! If i found that thread earlier I could have done it within 5 minutes.
    Thaks bgerlich.

    have you tried this:

    open terminal then type
    gconf-editor

    then Applications > Metacity > General and choose compositing_manager

    it could help if you didn't do it
    thanks bgerlich
