After recent updates I experience crashing again.
Heres what I get when trying to open gedit with valgrind:

I'm still looking for an option to connect my laptop to a 4:3 screen with 1280x1024 resolution without a problem- if someone has an idea it will be great.
BTW - any chance of seeing a good 3D + extended screen supported driver soon? (maybe on maverick?)
I have successfully fixed mine laptop with SiS****671 mirage-3 14.1 inch 1280x800 Lucid Lynx 10.04 for 2D acceleration at least the same as in 9.10 made by barrios since the old 9.10 driver no longer works in 10.04 lucid, here is another walkthrough for those who has troubles when they kill the gnome and flickers.
1. Download Driver here: http://ajoliveira.com/ajoliveira/gen...t_10.04.tar.gz
2. Unzip it, maybe in your home folder. A "32-bit" folder will appear.
3. Open terminal in the applications>accessories icon then type cd 32-bit so you will be in the 32-bit folder that contains sis671_drv.la and sis671_drv.so
4. type sudo cp sis671_drv.* /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/
5. type sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
7. a notepad will appear, copy and paste all of the code's content below into that notepad.
9. save it then restart.Code:# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file) # # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using # values from the debconf database. # # Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page. # (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.) # # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only* # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg # package. # # Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously # in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings # here are ignored. # # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated # again, run the following command: # sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg Section "Device" Identifier "Configured Video Device" Driver "sis671" EndSection Section "Monitor" Identifier "Configured Monitor" HorizSync 28-72 VertRefresh 43-60 EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" Monitor "Configured Monitor" Device "Configured Video Device" EndSection
If you have different monitor or resolution, you might change the HorizSync 28-72
VertRefresh 43-60 to your monitor resolution which is available in your product manual, or just google it.

did anyone tried to use Maverick with sis671?
Thanks! work for me in a notebook Olivetti 500 series with a Sis 671 video card.
I think that my problem is quite the same, but I've got a little problem with one step of the config...
here is a few things that I tried...
here is the problem, I install a fresh version of ubuntu 10.04 (64bits) and I can't
get higher resolution than 1024*768 on a wxga 17.1" screen wich is
supposed to have 16:10 resolution and a resolution of 1440x900
the output of lspci | grep VGA is the following :
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS]
771/671 PCIE VGA Display Adapter (rev 10)
I try to install the drivers in this way :
1) download the driver of SIS and put them in /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers
2) stop gdm
3) launch in a console Xorg -configure
-> but that step fail, with a segmentation fault,here is the output
In a second time I also try to manually change the xorg.conf file, by

ddxSigGiveUp: Closing log
changing the driver name and use the one that I put in the directory in
first step, but when I do this, when I re launch gdm the screen is weird
black and white with some kind of ghost...It's hard to describe...
currently I'm using VESA drivers but I can't get a high resolution so it's
very unpleasant to work on it...
In the hope that you could help me
thanks for your help
PS : Sorry for my English... I do the best I can
PS2 : the laptop is this one :http://www.**************/en/product...?productid=158
PS3 : link don't work...my laptop is CLEVO M771S
