    I am downloading it. It needs around 24 hour for 6-10KB/s

    Yes, it works. I am using it and I am running Ubuntu 8.10 i686 and the kernel is 2.6.27-11.

    Re: SiS 671/672 Graphics: OpenGL/3D driver

    I cannot get any desktop effects with this driver as it's for 2D only. 3D is not available.
    But at least I can get full 1280x800 resolution instead of 800x600 by this 2D driver.
    I install the driver following Dennis Schulmeister's site (see post #67).
    Visit this page
    http://ncc-1701a.homelinux.net/~linu...page=Downloads
    download sis_vga_drv_161208-Ubuntu810.run, follow the instruction and it should work.

    Some previous posts mentioned the Satax driver may work on 3D. I don't know how to install it as I am just a newbie of linux.

    Re: SiS 671/672 Graphics: OpenGL/3D driver

    Ok, just a little update for those who still try:

    How to make satux 3D driver work on kubuntu 8.04?
    Add this lines to your xorg.conf:

    Section "ServerFlags"
    Option "IgnoreABI" "true"
    EndSection

    I also works for ubuntu 8.04 but you have to make a backup of some files before installing it (or you'll have GTK problems)
    I don't remember which files should be backed up but I think they were:
    libGLEW.so.1.5 libGL.so.1 libGLU.so.1
    libGLEW.so.1.5.0 libGL.so.1.2 libGLU.so.1.3.070200
    they are on /usr/lib


    why? because the satux driver overwrittes them and that's what causing the GTK problems everyone complains about.
    It's obvious but I have to say it:
    Step 1: backups those files (also backup libdrm.so.2... I dont know but just in case)
    Step 2: install satux driver and DON'T restart X server until you complete the steps
    Step 3: restore your backup files to overwrite the files installed by the driver.

    WARNING: I think that should work but DO NOT do it on your main rig and make sure you have a backup of everything (just in case something goes wrong). I did this a loooong time ago and it worked (I think I did it on KUbuntu 8.04) but I don't remember the exact steps.


    A note on Ubuntu 8.10:

    I don't know why but the latest sis_vga_drv_161208-Ubuntu810 driver HAS dri support

    This is glxgears output:
    glxgears
    1196 frames in 5.0 seconds = 239.040 FPS
    1199 frames in 5.0 seconds = 239.681 FPS
    1193 frames in 5.0 seconds = 238.556 FPS

    And glxinfo:
    glxinfo
    name of display: :0.0
    display: :0 screen: 0
    direct rendering: Yes <-----------
    server glx vendor string: SGI
    server glx version string: 1.2


    I whould like to see how is glxgears performing on Satux 1.8 to compare results


    Good luck people!

    Re: SiS 671/672 Graphics: OpenGL/3D driver

    Hallo dc740,

    could you please post your xorg.conf from kubuntu 8.04 and satux3D/driver.
    I tried to install this drivers for ubuntu 8.04 but nothing happens. How should the xorg look like with a working satux/driver

    thank you

    I don't have the working xorg for KUbuntu. but this is my current xorg using the latest 32 bit Ubuntu 8.10 driver:

    # xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
    #

    Option "DefaultServerLayout" "Singlehead Layout"

    to make it work remember to add this option:

    Option "IgnoreABI" "true"

    On the server flags section. that whould be:
    Section "ServerFlags"
    #Option "xinerama" "true"
    Option "DefaultServerLayout" "Singlehead Layout"
    Option "IgnoreABI" "true"
    EndSection
    I couldn't enable multiple monitors. I think I should use MergeFB instead of Xinerama. If ou can make it work then let me know. I think MergeFB is not enabled on the latest drivers anyway.

    Good luck.
