    You mean "Install Mandriva 2010 and your SiS will work as charm"? Never heard about Mandriva enabling 3D for SiS. I guess that's not possible, yet, am I wrong?

    untill mandriva 2009, sis card was working with 3D options, but after there were no 3D support but at least, a driver called "sisimedia" is included as default in all new distributions wich give you 2D support

    Does Mandriva 2009 have 3D support? I would definitely switch to that distro if they do.

    I know, it's not the latest version, but it's good enough. I don't want compiz nor any fancy desktop effect, I just want basic 3D acceleration.

    Mandriva NEVER had SiS 3D support, but Mandriva 2009/2010 supported a lot of SiS based adapters out of the box (sisimedia driver) with 2D acceleration enabled.
    However, SiS 3D performance is poor. I have a dual boot with Win 7 and Aero effects run barely.
    Never expect to play any 3D games newer than 5 years on SiS grpahics, even if a 3D driver is released in future.

    I have a Postivo Premium R430L with this crappy SiS 671 chip.

    Just to all you guys out there ... the post "THIS WORKS - explained version" on page 38 of this thread:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=958967&page=38

    will do the trick, am currently running a 1280x800 at 60Hz and it never looked better .

    Thanks to all for this post, thanks to mhgsys for the "for dummies guide" you are now my best friend the blind typing was a "freaked me out moment" but everything went as expected. Just remember to change the driver to "sis671" as is written on the readme.txt

    Now to make this damn Realtek 8187b wi-fi card to work so I can lose the Win7 partition for good ...

    sure. I can give you the definitive answer:

    NO. You won't have nice desktop effects with this chipset... don't hold your hopes. It just won't happen. There is NO support from SiS. There is no 3D acceleration, and probably there won't ever be anything close to it.
    Good Luck.
