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

    Hello
    i am using sis 771 and used the driver (http://launchpadlibrarian.net/204636....10-1_i386.deb) which was posted here a while back and i get 900-915
    unfortunately i have no 3d fully(compiz)
    which i don't understand as i had it ages ago on this laptop. (it was on full as well (window effects))

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

    I had to modify src code to get SiS671 driver to work with my new ASUS X5DC Laptop (running ubuntu 9.10 64-Bit) - It was unable to get EDID information and detected LCD Panel as 0x0

    Screen now running at 1360x768 not quite at the max 1366x768 but I guess you can't have everything!

    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).
    dude, i'm too lazy to read 220+ replies to this post so i'll ask u, will it work on ubuntu 9.10 karmic? even in beta stage.
    it seems to be a great contribution from u.

    Come on dude. Don't be that lazy. There are many drivers posted on this thread that are actually working on Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala final edition (you needn't a beta).
    If you're too lazy, try (only for this time) reading backwards instead of beginning from the top.

    You're gonna find working drivers for SiS 771/671 ready to use but with no 3D acceleration yet (that means no compiz, no eye candy). Among the options there even ones that need only .deb installation and nothing more (no xorg.conf editing, just click, install, restart and voilà). I suggest you to try them in first place (I assume you're only beginning to use Ubuntu, so editing might put it too difficult for you right now).

    Good luck... and if you still feel lazy, insist someone (including myself) may subsidize your laziness and guide you straight to the driver. But if you find it yourself you're gonna feel a lot better, man!

    thanks so much, that's exactly the answer that i was looking for. i meant by 'lazy': actually having to read EVERY SINGLE post (more than 220 posts), if that's what was needed, but unfortunately that's what i would've done if you wouldn't had given me this answer.
    thanks for the advise about the reading order, and saving me at least 100 posts.
    nothing that i can presume, but i actually am not lazy at all (only if the very hard work can be avoided, or if the benefits are not for my own, as in this case), that's what've kept me learning from gnu/linux world's gurus like you.
    thanks again pal

    If you are to lazy to read there is a compilation of some of the drivers and solutions here: http://ncc-1701a.homelinux.net/~linu...page=Downloads

    I think it covers the driver needed for the latest ubuntu version, however it hasn't been updated since september.
