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

    Hi! Is there any way to use minitube with this card? As I assume minitube uses the default output driver, witch crashes ubuntu. How can I change it or do something else to make it work?

    Has anyone begun trying Oneiric Ocelot? I mean a Beta...
    I guess we all have to tweak installation again ....

    Yeaaaah, that would be awesome. Now I'm using Windows 7 because I'm tired of tweaking installation, dealing with blind typing, and frequent errors in installation.

    This solution worked perfectly for me after months of trying all sorts of fixes.

    I'm running an Asus X58C 32-bit Ubuntu 11.04 installation. Certainly worth trying for other machines with the 671 chipset.

    That info works fine for me too, on Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot).

    Thanks for posting it, BobLloyd.

    It seems to have come originally from the blog of Hugo Bastos:

    http://diversosassuntosbrasil.blogspot.com/2011/09/ubuntu-1110-e-placa-de-video-sis-671.html

    Try the solution below:

    first, install the packages below:

    -git
    -xorg-dev
    -libdrm-dev
    -libtool
    -mesa-common-dev

    In a terminal:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install git
    sudo apt-get install xorg-dev
    sudo apt-get install libdrm-dev
    sudo apt-get install libtool
    sudo apt-get install mesa-common-dev
    Then type in your terminal:

    Code:
    git clone git://github.com/hellnest/xf86-video-sismedia-0.9.1.git 
    cd xf86-video-sismedia-0.9.1  
    ./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-static
    make
    sudo make install
    Then reboot your computer/laptop
    The driver makes your default resolution 1280×800.

    If your PC/laptop has 1366×768 resolution, you can edit/create your xorg.conf, by typing:

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    copy this script:
    Code:
    Section "Device"
       Identifier     "Configured Video Device"
       Option         "UseTiming1366"  "yes" 
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
       Identifier     "Configured Monitor"
       EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
       Identifier     "Default Screen"
       Monitor        "Configured Monitor"
       Device         "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    Save and its resolution will be changed to 1366x768.
    If you can’t get 3D effect, and 3D Unity cannot activated, but if you still feel you need Unity rather than something superior, you can install 2D Unity by typing:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install unity-2d
    then activate your 2D Unity

    Code:
    sudo unity-2d-launcher
    Reboot your laptop/PC
    The re-compiled sis771/671 driver works fine with Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot), as shipped with x.org X server v.1.10.4 and the default AMD64 kernel (3.0.0-12-generic SMP).
