    Hmm, so you're running a 1360*768 resolution on a panel with a native 1366*768 resolution.
    That's certainly better than 1024*768, 800*600 or any other low non-native resolution, but I think that those 6 missing pixels are somewhere interpolated, what results in a bit blurred picture.

    I have a 1280*800 panel and when I first tried to get native resolution 2 years ago, I got stuck at 1280*768 - what was not far from native resolution, but the picture could not compete at all with the native resolution I achieved with the 2D sis driver at the end.

    You resolution must be easier to set because it's common resolution for wide panel IMO. there's a lot a new recompile driver just a few page behind...

    we can't have a pure native resolution for 1366 based display,

    if you run cvt 1366 768 60 the resulit would be 1368x768_60.00
    so the only solution we had only to run it at least 1360x768

    Well, I'm just wondering why Barros Lee offers a 2D SiS driver for 10.04 on his blog (http://barroslee.blogspot.com/search/label/sis671), gives instructions on how to set up 1366*768 in xorg.conf and no one gives that a try...?
    Am I missing something at this point?

    A friend has a sis671 with that resolution, where did you get those drivers?

    I really don't want to promote another linux distribution in the Ubuntu forum but for SiS chipsets I have to claim that Mandriva (and eventually PCLinuxOS (Mandriva fork)) is THE distribution to use. SiS @ 1280*800 (2D of course) is supported by Mandriva out of the box since almost 2 years and I would even consider a 1366*768 support with one added line to xorg.conf as possible. I have no 1366 panel, so I can't test.
    I have no idea why Ubuntu can not offer the same support for SiS graphics.

    So tell your friend to download a Mandriva 2010.1 One live CD and see if it works out of the box on his machine.

    Thanks. In my case Mandriva didnt work but i think thats because my resolution (1366x768) but yes, i was told Mandriva worked with 1280x800. Anyway Im with Ubuntu now and Im going to wait to see if I can get a driver for 10.10.

    Anyway I've given Mandriva a try, but it's definitely not as user-friendly as Ubuntu, at least not for noobs... But I was wondering (because all this stuff is a mystery to me) how is it possible for Mandriva to succeed... while Ubuntu doesn't?
    (Disclaimer => Mandriva provides nice working 2D video driver for SiS... it's not 3D! So, no Compiz, no so eye candy!)

    Not for all, but many people with a sis671 chipset install Mandriva with ANY troubles at all after trying with Ubuntu and getting a flashing screen.
