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

    Hi,

    I have just installed ubuntu 10.04 and have never used it before. I have the problem of only being able to run at a maximum of 800x600 resolution. I have tried to follow the suggestions posted on this thread, but being a new user I am a bit confused! Could someone provide me with an idiots guide to getting a better resolution?

    Thanks in advance!

    @Peej2103.. my "guide" was located on page 38 of this thread, bringing it back up for you (and maybe others)
    Btw; If you are using a Asus K50C/ X5DC.. use the driver from @purct in post #438

    download the drivers from (htttp: //estebanordano.com.ar/sis-m671m672-driver-for-xorg-xserver-7-5-on-debian-sidux
    EDIT: Bandwidth Limit Exceeded

    Use http://ajoliveira.com/ajoliveira/gen...t_10.04.tar.gz for the 32 bit driver and
    http://ajoliveira.com/ajoliveira/gen...t_10.04.tar.gz for the 64 bit driver,

    (take the install files), unzip them

    once unzipped copy or move them (I just copied them)

    Open up a terminal and go to the path you've unzipped them in.(use the cd command to navigate to directory's) f.e; cd /home/user/Downloads

    Code:
    sudo cp sis671_drv.* /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/
    Code:
    type in your password and press enter
    then stop X

    We need to stop X or we won't be able to auto-generate a xorg.conf.new

    Code:
    sudo service gdm stop
    you'll have to do next part blindly)


    Code:
    Switch to tty1 by pressing Ctrl+Alt+f1
    (f2 for tty2, f3 for tty3, etc.. (f7 should be X)

    Even though you won't be able to read it (yet) you can login
    Code:
    type in your username and press enter
    Code:
    type in your password and press enter
    Now you're logged in you want to become root; type;
    Code:
    sudo bash
    Code:
    type in your password
    Now your root; type in
    Code:
    Xorg -configure
    (this will create a xorg.conf.new in your home directory)

    and start gdm again with
    Code:
    service gdm start
    Once there; Open up a terminal again;
    move the auto-generated xorg.conf.new to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    with

    Code:
    sudo mv xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    and restart gdm by typing;
    Code:
    sudo service gdm restart
    Fix the plymouth and the unreadable tty problem like this
    Open up a terminal and typ

    Code:
    sudo bash
    Code:
     enter your password
    type;
    Code:
    echo blacklist vga16fb > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-vga16fb.conf
    type;
    Code:
    update-initramfs -u
    and reboot

    Code:
    reboot

    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?

    My first guess is you are using the driver purct created for asus laptops, and you don't have a asus laptop.
    In that case; follow my post above.

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

    With a SIS Mirage 3 card I upgraded from 0910 KarmicKoala to 1004 Lucid Lynx. I had only 800*600 resolution then found a solution to get a nice 1280*800 graphic screen.
    My only remaining problem is that I cannot boot (Grub2) in recovery mode, the screen is flickering (or steady after blocking fb16). I have the same screen if I start a tty screen (CTRL+ALT+F1 to 6). I also tried to type "blindly" in this flickering screen in order to loggin then use startx command but it does not seem to work. I think that, even if I don't use very often a tty screen or the recovery mode start procedure it might be useful in order to recover from a major failure of the system.
    Any idea to solve that problem ? Thanks to all for this very interesting thread.

    Just an addition to my last post : I get the same result when I boot my laptop on the 1004 live CD or on a USB key I made from the iso image, both are working well with a 800*600 resolution but they don't allow me to open a tty terminal where I just get a flickering screen.
