For those who did'nt find the solution yet, you can follow this steps to install the driver:

  • Extract the files, then go to the folder
  • Copy sis_drv.so and sis_drv.la from usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers to /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/, replacing the existing files
  • Copy the etc/X11/xorg.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf, replacing the existing file (make a backup before!!!)

    IMPORTANT: xorg.conf that comes with the sisdrv-ubuntu-8.04.tar.gz has the keybord configuration for Brazilian language, you can take the correct configuration for your keyboard from your backedup xorg.conf
  • Restart X

You can try this driver with other distros, but i don't know if works.

This the result of lspci:
VGA compatible controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 771/671 PCIE VGA Display Adapter (rev 10)

Tanks to GDH Press: Blog, all this information i got from them.

*** There is no 3D support ...
Does it work with Intrepid? Or is it just for Hardy?
