    Re: SiS 771/671 Mirage 3 Video Drivers

    i have FuSi esprimo V5535 laptop and of course i had problems with the SiS 771/671 graphics stuff.

    i used Antonio J. de Oliveira's great instructions from http://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/sis and got the laptop display working like a charm. but i can't get my external display to extend my desktop on it. it shows the same desktop i have on the laptop screen. i'm sure it's only xorg.conf settings, but being the newbie i am, i need some help with it. anyone? pretty please....

    Re: SiS 771/671 Mirage 3 Video Drivers

    I have been struggling with the same problem as above.

    Keen to move to Linux I got 12.04 installed on an old laptop with SIS VGA. Initially I had the resolution problems which were solved thanks to Antonio J. de Oliveira's great instructions and drivers.

    All is good, except for trying to work with a separate monitor. The connection with the second monitor clearly works but it only shows the same as the laptop screen. I cannot do anything in the Monitor Preferences area as it only list one monitor as Unknown and fails to detect the second monitor.

    Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Re: SiS 771/671 Mirage 3 Video Drivers

    i got it working

    but i have no elegant way to tell how i did it. it was kinda stumbling in the dark and i'm sure someone else can explain better how it works.

    first i did this

    make
    
    sudo make install
    i got some errors and nothing actually changed.

    what i did after that was google a lot. found some stuff in the gentoo forums that helped me a bit but the main part is shamelessly copied from linux.fi and resolutions edited to suit my needs. the login screen needs to be adjusted too so the login window is placed properly, but that a matter for another thread.

    here's my xorg.conf now

           EndSection
    by the way i managed to get xfce4 randr not to function after this so use at your own risk...

    i hope this helps someone and there will be "proper" instructions how to do it.

    Re: SiS 771/671 Mirage 3 Video Drivers

    First of all, thank you for making this available, Antonio. It's really good to see things like this.

    Onto my query, however. I also have this dreaded piece of 'hardware' and am having real difficulties in getting it working. Following the instructions given on this thread to install the driver -seems- to have worked. The driver looks like it is loading, as per:

    http://paste.ubuntu.com/1516972/

    However, I am left with a blank screen upon X loading. I have attempted to make a few changes to a created xorg.conf to no avail. There is success with this piece of hardware on the Mageia distribution. I ended up booting into that and grabbing the xorg.conf, copying the modeline needed over. This is how my xorg.conf looks right now:

    http://paste.ubuntu.com/1516979/

    Other pertinent information:

    root@octagon:/etc/X11# cat /etc/issue
    Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS \n \l

    lspci -vv for the device:

    http://pastebin.com/BRZRZYbq

    Any help in getting this finally working would be absolutely amazing.

    Thanks again, and hopefully I can get this resolved soon.

    -martin

    Re: SiS 771/671 Mirage 3 Video Drivers

    here's my lspci -vv for the vga adapter. looks pretty much same as yours.
    http://paste.ubuntu.com/1520318/

    altough i think there might be something in here.
    your xorg.conf says
    Code:
    Section "Device"
        Identifier "device1"
        VendorName "Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS]"
        BoardName "SiS SiS 670 / 671-based cards"
        Driver "sis671"
        Option "DPMS"
    EndSection
    and mine says
    Code:
    Section "Device"
     Identifier  	"Device0"
     Driver      	"sisfb"
     VendorName  	"Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS]"
     BoardName   	"771/671 PCIE VGA Display Adapter"
     BusID		"PCI:1:0:0"
     Option 	"UseTiming1280" "yes"
     Option 	"EnableSiSCtrl" "no"
     Option 	"DRI" "off"
     Option 	"MergedFB" "auto"
     Option 	"MetaModes" "1280x1024-1280x800"
     Option 	"MergedDPI" "100 100"
    EndSection
    so maybe changing the driver, because i think we have similar boards. also putting the BusID in your config should help.

    Re: SiS 771/671 Mirage 3 Video Drivers

    Hello! As you may see, I'm new in the forum.I read the 84 pages of this thread, and finally, I learned how to, and installed the SiS drivers developed by Antonio.

    They work smoothly in my Olibook 520. Thank you!

    Following the thread, however, I noticed that my external monitor only mirrowed the laptop monitor. At the same resolution (i.e. 1280x800).

    (I'm getting picky)

    I tried the solution posted Turbomursu, but I just expanded the monitor to the LG LCD connected through a VGA adapter (at the same resolution, once more). And, of course, I got some error messages, and the xrandr did not work anymore.

    I backpedalled and now I have, again, the SiS drivers working and mirrowing to the LG LCD at 1280x800.

    I was wondering if there is a way to output through the VGA adapter at a higher resolution, so I can watch movies, for instance.

    My xrandr output is the following:


    xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
    Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 1280 x 800, maximum 1280 x 800
    default connected 1280x800+0+0 0mm x 0mm
    1280x800 60.0*
    1024x768 60.0
    800x600 60.0
    640x480 60.0

    Thank you in advance to you all.

    Talking Re: SiS 771/671 Mirage 3 Video Drivers

    SiS 671/771 Graphics card notebooks:


    This was the only solution I get to this problem, but only works on 12.04 LTS version and derivates, Lubuntu, Kubunto, Mint 13 and all that are based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:

    The infamous SiS graphics cards are difficult to tame in Linux, unfortunately. Luckily there's a good solution now for the SiS 671/771 video card, although it requires some manual work.

    https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/sis

    With this uou can reached 1280x800

    Hope it helps

    Thank you HCMC. Ihave already walked such path,and, fortuntely,it went well. My question is: can I get more resolution in the connected TV thru the VGA adapter?

    Hello everyone,

    I'm also one of the unfortunate owners of a laptop with this card. -.-

    I was previously using Ubuntu 10.x and I managed to fixed the resolution and video play in fullscreen, altough I don't remember exactly what drivers and configurations I was using.

    Now that I have upgraded to 12.04, I followed António's method in (https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/sis) for installation of his custom driver, and this fixed the resolution, but I cannot play videos in fullscreen. I'm using the VLC player, and when I go into fullscreen, the image freezes, and I have to manually kill the VLC. I have also tried the

    Could any fix this problem? Any help would be highly appreciated.
