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

    This thread helped me a GREAT DEAL!

    I have an ancient ASUS desktop with SiS display adapter-- It was running in Low Res mode until I followed your process--
    To recap,
    Download Sis 771 and 671 video drivers, and add them to
    ****
    I used gedit with the superuser password to change the driver to
    vesa (lower case letters) in
    ****

    and to change HorizSync 20-107
    VertRefresh 50-185
    To change the resolution, I went to System- Preferences- Display

    At the message,

    It appears that your graphics driver does not support the necessary extensions to use this tool. Do you want to use your graphics driver vendor's tool instead? [Y] [N]

    I clicked [No]; 1064 x 768 was available on the list-- I clicked it and voila! No more low res mode!

    Thanks again to everyone who contributed to this thread!

    PS-- For the truly compulsive, here's my system; Note the SiS in everything...

    nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    and i added under Section "Monitor" and then under Identifier "Monitor0"
    HorizSync 20-107

    then scroll down a bit to you see Section "Device"
    and find Driver and change whatever is between the quotes (forgot what was there) to
    VESA

    so in the end it should look like

    Code:

            HorizSync 20-107

    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
            ### Available Driver options are:-

            Identifier  "Card0"
            Driver      "VESA"
            VendorName  "Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS]"

    Hope this helps.

    You have a typo ; and should copy them to /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/
    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?

    a typo is a mistake made by accident while typing or transcribing something

    This is what you did:
    1> extract the 32bit driver package to downloads folder
    2> cd /home/usr/Downloads
    3> sudo cp sis671_drv.* /usr/lib/org/modules/drivers/
    Here is what you should do

    1> extract the 32bit driver package to downloads folder
    2> cd /home/usr/Downloads
    3>sudo cp sis671_drv.* /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/

    The typo you made was in line /usr/lib/org/modules/drivers/
    Notice you forgot the x in xorg
    it should be /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/

    Btw since your new to linux, ..
    Remember to change usr in /home/usr to your username,

    f.e: cd /home/mhgsys/Downloads

    usr in the line /usr/lib/xorg/modules is correct though.. so don't change it there.

    Update for xorg 1.9 is possible by patching sis_driver.c:

    It is working on Archlinux (http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=34256) where I use the source code I found in this forum. Thanks again and lets hope that the driver keeps working in future releases.

    driver attached.
    - sis671_drv_0.9.1 for the maverick(10.10) i386.

    Usage)

    1. extract sis671_drv.so to the /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers
    It's compressed by gzip and 7z ( why? type and size )

    2. add(or modify) these lines at /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    or extract xorg.conf.gz and modify refresh rate(vert/horiz).

    advent 9315 specHello peeps, first time on these forums

    I have tried everything noted in this thread. Im using an Advent 9315 laptop (everything else works fine, sound wifi etc) running Ubuntu 10.10 beta
    Max resolution is 800x600, xorg.conf is blank as default and every time i edit this filr i cant get to the gui
    After installing farmer,lee's driver, i get an error going into monitor options:
    "It appears that your graphics driver does not support the necessary extensions to use this tool. Do you want to use your graphics driver vendor's tool instead?"

    Pressing no gets me into options, but if i press yes it brings an error loading ATI Catalyst Control Center?

    Still cant get any higher than 800x600 and i've been digging around for a solution since the T-Rex walked the earth

    No issues with Plymouth boot screen, no garbage and splash screen works fine

    PLEASE HELP!!!! Im going bald with the stress!!!

    ***EDIT***
    chipset is SIS M672MX

    ATI Catalyst Control Center? it's not concerned with SIS VGA Device.
    did you tried "vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf", everytime ?

    try this. and remove ATI Catalyst Control Center(it will remove all your settings). don't use it.
    sudo vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf
