    Maybe SIS wants to deliver the graphics card in some low level netbooks which should be able to run Ubuntu Light or so?
    Who knows? But it sounds awesome... Mr. Lee, thank you in advance just for this statement

    You're new to Linux, aren't you?
    Mr. Lee is supposed to have worked on a SiS 771/671 3D driver for each and every flavor of Ubuntu, but no one has ever come to find it (a kinda Sasquatch you know what I mean?).
    The fact that he says he's working on it, it doesn't mean he will deliver it. If you still keep some hope, pay a visit to this site http://barroslee.blogspot.com/2008/0...supported.html you're gonna meet lots of people around the world begging for the 3D driver with no success.

    (May be I got a little bit of emotional, Mr. Lee developed a 3D driver for Ubuntu 7.10... and stopped there. It's been said, well he's been saying, that SiS asked him to update his 3D driver since, but SiS is not authorizing him to deliver it... "SiS will let the driver meet its users" something which never ever happened.... So, either Lee is not working on it or he is working, giving it to SiS and SiS is storing drivers just for the sake of it, how should we call a driver collector? Oh, wait, Driver Collector!)

    Damned... I know they have a driver but I won't stop hoping to get it

    BTW: I'm not new to Linux but to SIS... I was kinda forced to get this laptop due to hardware problems with the last one which was changed instead of repairing it the 5th time... SAD

    So, you're not new, sorry my bad!
    I see in you the hope I used to have. Unfortunately hope alone is not useful in this situation.
    The switching-to-SiS decision was the worst you could ever make. Being SiS-harwared is a big disadvantage affecting survival within the Linux Ecosystem.
    Again, didn't want to underestimate you, dude, just wanted to cast some light on the issue, and you see sometimes truth hurts, ha ha ha.
    Anyway, I have no moral authority to reprehend you since I'm a plain user and don't know even the smallest bit of software development... that is I can't help... I just can wait... and I'm getting sick of it.
    Good vibes!

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

    Hi !

    I've just updated to 10.04 and I'm using the drivers provided above.

    The http://estebanordano.com.ar/sis-m671...-debian-sidux/ is not working for me at the moment (bandwidth limit problem) but I downloaded it from other sources some people posted (binary distributions).

    Everything is working fine for me except for fullscreen flash movies. The performance using 9.10 used to be decent, now is very poor.

    Fullscreen downloaded videos (avi, mpg, etc) seems to be working fine only flash seems to be the problem.

    I tried using diferent browsers but the performance is the same (FF and chrome)

    Anyone else having this problem ?

    Thanks in advance for all your efforts
    Leandro.

    Hi macramole,

    Yep; Same problem with the flash here;

    Just right click on the screen (where the flashmovie is playing) and in settings: disable hardware acceleration. Flash will be running fullscreen fine then.
    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?

    Not working for me, left me with unbootable 10.04.

    guess im sticking for 9.10 for a long time till i change to a new laptop, A New Laptop that is WITHOUT a SIS product! that is.

    Avoid SIS product!. they should create website that black list all this not working hardware in linux so people can avoid them.

    (You can use my "guide" to install it; http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=958967&page=38)

    And the modified driver;http://www.4shared.com/dir/33545876/...4/sharing.html
    The modified 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).

    Gathered everything from here; http://ajoliveira.com/ajoliveira/uk/software/xorg.php
    and the modified driver from;http://tpurch-blog.blogspot.com/2010...1004.html#more

    Thought it may be handy to have all this information in one post.
