With pleasure I'll pass it on!
Sorry I didn't search for an email but would take much longer.
I've uploaded it here http://download.dekoderek.net/sis-on...u10.04.tar.bz2
Feel free to download it, put it on your server or even hot link it. I won't delete it probably. I might need it one day again and I'll probably blog about it.
thank you ajoliveira, my prbleme is resolved, i have to wait just few minutes to obtain complete live session.
i received an email from barros lee, he told me that:
Here is the 2d driver for ubuntu 10.04.
If you are using vesa driver now, you may change your resolution to lower resolution such as 1024x768 first.
Then just copy sis_drv.* to /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/
And restart X or reboot.
Recently, SiS ask me to develop new 3d driver for linux, so I just porting 2d driver to ubuntu 10.04.
If you find some bugs of 2d driver, I will fix it in my free time.
i tested that driver, it work verry fine, i don't have problems.
here are files of the 2D driver, and you have just to copy to /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/
Did you have to edit Purcts xorg.conf much to get it working or did you just slap that same sucker in there and it worked? Or did you even use the xorg.conf? I have the same K50C-laptop(or well, my girlfriend does) and I struggled for hours trying to get it to work on 9.10, this is the first glimmer of hope I've seen to get her back to the wonderful Ubuntu-land.Originally Posted by dekoderek
I'll do a clean install on top of the 9.10 installation over the weekend, so I'll try to get all the facts straight so I don't have to go insane again and listen to all the whining "IT STILL DOESN'T WORK!?!?!"
http://tpurch-blog.blogspot.com/2010...untu-1004.html but use this package instead of purct's one mentioned there.
I have now uploaded the 32 & 64 binaries for Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) sis671 Xorg driver
A link to the drivers & instructions on how to install them are available from my blog - http://tpurch-blog.blogspot.com
Note: The driver has been modified to support ASUS Widescreen Laptops - specifically written for the X5DC but may support others....(dekoderek compiled the 32-Bit edition and confirmed that it works with K50C).
For ASUS laptop users I have included a sample xorg.conf file - The "SpecialTiming" "ASUSX5DC" option in xorg.conf forces LCD to 1360x768. This setting may work for other laptops but I can't confirm it.
Non ASUS Laptop users should remove the following line from xorg.conf:
Option "SpecialTiming" "ASUSX5DC"
Best of luck!

Just to let you know - I just updated kernel with update manager and drivers still work!
I can also confirm getting the driver working on an Asus K50C like Dekoderek. Doing everything with purcts blog-guide and using the driver built by Dekoderek worked like a charm.
