    Is this your first time in Ubuntu? May be you could read some post-install guides that teach you how to tweak Ubuntu (simply google for 'post install ubuntu 10.04', when you find a problem with your Ubuntu ask the forums, when you find the solution share it. Ubuntu is a community, we're supposed to help each other, that's the way we AAAALLLLL learn.
    Keep in touch with this thread (by suscription/bookmarking) you will need it next time you update. If your noob-noob don't update until there's a solution/trick for SiS 671/771, otherwise you won't be able to access your desktop (or you will access but in the wrong resolution).
    See you around!

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

    Just a little workaround for everyone booting ubuntu 10.10 maverick.
    (vesa)

    I did not figure out how to recompile the sis driver due to the deprecated errors I get when running make.

    However; My tty's work fine after blacklisting vga16fb
    Code:
    echo blacklist vga16fb > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-vga16fb.conf
    Code:
    update-initramfs -u
    Code:
    reboot
    After the tty's are useable again we use them to generate a xorg.conf
    switch to tty (ctrl+alt+f1 ,f2, f3 etc)

    Code:
    sudo service gdm stop
    Code:
    sudo Xorg -configure
    Code:
    sudo mv xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Go to section Monitor and put in ;
    HorizSync 28-80
    VertRefresh 43-60

    Change the driver to vesa in section Device


    then start gdm again (or reboot)
    Code:
    sudo service gdm start
    Although It's on vesa.. I have my screen on 1280x768 on 10.10

    I then downloaded xcompmgr and put it in my startup applications.. So I have transparency in my gnome-terminal.

    So; Not a solution for 10.10 yet.. But a good enough workaround for now .. for me.

    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?

    Has anybody heard about this?
    The article is written in Portuguese (by Hugo Bastos) so I can't get everything and may be I'm repeating something that has already been posted. Anyway, to my surprise, the author states that he finally could enable 3D in his SiS video card.
    I'm asking to our enlightened friends in this forum: Is this possible? Can anyone translate and release the linked tutorial?

    @Elzigzag

    Google translate will do the trick translating it..I suppose.

    But looking closer, he just installed the driver for the sis 671 771, and I don't see any big difference to the driver I installed.

    looking at my xorg.conf
    Code:
    Section "Module"
            Load  "extmod"
            Load  "record"
            Load  "glx"
            Load  "dri"
            Load  "dbe"
            Load  "dri2"
    Seems to be loading already... + glxgears give me
    Code:
    mhg@mhg-laptop:~$ glxgears 
    644 frames in 5.0 seconds
    639 frames in 5.0 seconds
    554 frames in 6.1 seconds
    (with my gnome and firefox open)

    Can you maybe try, if Gnome Shell is running with this pseudo-3D mode?! Cause it was only black and totaly unusable, with the 2D only SIS from Barros Lee. But i hope, i can use this future release of Gnome also - if not i have to switch to a slow KDE 4.x or XFCE, or buy a new NON-SIS Notebook - but dont realy want that.

    He also installed sis671_dri.so, I think that is the Satux 3D driver for SiS chipsets (only for 32 bit, gives me 'wrong elf class' on x86_64...)

    Ah, I overlooked that fact completely, thnx for pointing me to this.
    I just downloaded and installed the sis671_drv.la sis671_drv.so and
    sis671_dri.so along with the xorg.conf giving on that page.
    Seems to be working alot better now

    Now gxlgears gives me;
    Code:
     
    704 frames in 5.0 seconds
    715 frames in 5.0 seconds
    705 frames in 5.0 seconds
    711 frames in 5.0 seconds
    and xorg.conf now contains

    Code:
     Load "dri"
        Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension
        Load "v4l" # Video for Linux
        Load "extmod"
        Load "type1"
        Load "freetype"
        Load "glx" # 3D layer
        Load "GLcore"
    Section "DRI"
            Mode 0666
    EndSection
    (I'm also on 64 bit btw, and did not recive the wrong elf class error)
