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

    Umm well this is just a thought, but can't Cannonical / Ubuntu Devs ask sis for the driver to go in to their distro as well ?

    I know that there aren't many people with the sis curse around, but if it aint that much trouble to compile the drivers for 8.10 it would be a really nice work around, and since sis provided them to satux maybe they will do the same for ubuntu.

    The problem is not don't use Sis. The real problem is the people who have Sis graphics on the laptop.

    Canonical should give a solution like Statux offering the drivers for the sis users, but i think Canonical never developes new things and innovations for the community. Canonical is just a collection of the community advances with nothing new.

    Other question:
    PLease, look this post in Statux forums and read the post where someone tells how put statux drivers in Slackware:

    Olá senhores,

    Peguei o pacote disponivel do site do satux com o driver 3d da sis, descompactei o mesmo, e então separei os seguintes arquivos

    usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/sis_drv.la
    usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/sis_drv.so
    usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/sis_drv.lai
    usr/lib/dri/sis671_dri.so

    Copiei os mesmos para os diretorios em questão utilizado no slackware e vuala, dri funcionando.

    Obviamente a necessário mandar carregar o dri e o glx no xorg.conf
    He after umpack the driver put copy of the named files in respective places and make it work the Sis 3d driver loading dri and glx in xorg.conf.

    I was trying do the same without nothing results.
    Have someone success?
    Please, tell us how do it.
    grets.

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

    It depends on what ubuntu version you use , because those drivers are for an old kernel from what i understand.

    Also i been looking at that site, and they have some beta and alpha drivers for Sis cards that suposetly should work in 8.10.
    But to get them you need to register to something called SLEP -> thats where i got lost, cause i dont speak portugeuse i was just using the google function "Translate Page"

    The satux forum is outdated (recently only users posts). The SLEP is a group of "beta testers", but there is no way to subscribe, maybe work only in a old satux forum. And so, the "beta" drivers posts at satux forum are the same in the normal download section.

    If satux still alive, the developers are in vacation... =)

    So i emailed Fujitsu siemens support regarding this issue, and luckly the person that answered me was kind enought to try and do something about it, he contacted sis and they sent him the driver and he passed it to me, sadly its for Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn).
    Not sure if its 3D but seems like it, so if some one got 7.04 or just wants to try it out, send me few lines and i will email it to you

    Regards
