Karmic on Dell Vostro 1500 - Mythbuntu Lucid-upgrade may cause heartburn, ECS 671T-M, Pentium E6500 Dual Core, 2gb, Seagate 320gb SATA, Samsung SATA DVD, ASUS EN8400GS GeForce 512mb, PVR-150 MCE, HVR-1250, Seasonic S12II-330, Lian-Li PC-V300B
you need to do sudo chmod +x ./sis_vga_drv_161208-Ubuntu810.run
and then sudo ./sis_vga_drv_161208-Ubuntu810.run
Thats how i did it.
I have Ubuntu 8.10 64 Bit. The driver seems only to work with the 32- Bit- Version.
Is there a 64- Bit Version available?
email this person: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thats where all the drivers you see here come from, i sent him an email, and he sent me the driver for 8.10.
So i am geussing if you ask nicely he shall provide
*Bump* For any one who got something new to add
I managed to get the driver working with 2D acceleration (with Xaa, x86 arch) in Jaunty. If anyone has Jaunty installed and wants to test the driver send me a line.
I plan to get the driver operational with 2d accel in x86 and amd64 by the Jaunty beta release.

Thanks for your hard work bgerlich! It's very much appreciated.
Now if only SiS would abandon their ridiculous policy of not releasing the 3D driver....
They have said they would only release the driver to hardware manufacturers but as far as I know nobody has had any luck whatsoever getting them from the manufacturer. I really don't know what their game is.
Anyway - thanks again for your hard work. I look forward to trying out your driver with the Jaunty beta.
For anyone else having trouble with the SiS video - there's a good site here with some good information. http://ncc-1701a.homelinux.net/~linux-sis/
People, anybody installed Satux linux , it's brasilian, but they wrote 3d driver for SIS, today I try this driver, and wrote about my exploration tomorrow
P.S. Brasilian language so hard.....
