SiS 771/671

Hi everyone smile First of all I've to say I'm a newbie in linux.
Can you help me, please, with sis mirage 3 graphics video driver for my asus k50c ?
The sreen's resolution must be 1366x768 but in crunchbang (and other linux systems) it's 1024x768  sad
How to resolve that problem?
Sorry for my english.
Crunchbang is working faster then other system,thereon I'd like to remain on it.

Re: SiS 771/671

hello prodius, welcome to the forums!

please search crunchbang forums and debian forums for "sis mirage", and then the web for "linux sis mirage" - iirc there were some problems.
basically you need to get the right driver.

please share your findings, then post output of "lsmod" and "lspci".

Re: SiS 771/671

i can see no video driver in your list of modules.
(except uvcvideo and videodev, but i have no clue what that could be)
that would mean that the kernel is using some fallback driver, and that's why the resolution can't go higher.

how are your searches going?
maybe we can combine efforts once you find something.

ps: have you tried the obvious thing, like changing resolution with arandr or xrandr?
you might also post the output of "xrandr".

Re: SiS 771/671

No results for  "Debian sis mirage" searching.
For "linux sis mirage" i found something ,but solutions aren't relevant for the new versions sad
In linux mint 10.10 i could set normal resolution,through that driver (direct link)
But 10.10 release has a lot of bugs ,and i removed it.

Re: SiS 771/671

Is it deleted in crunchbang ?

Re: SiS 771/671

In my experiments with statler on the HP t5720 using the SiS 741GX chipset , I recall being stuck with the VESA driver = no wide screen modes.

that would prove my theory that your system is running on the default video driver.

maybe we should start offering how-to's for searching the web.
i found this:
http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-instal … lucid.html
admittedly, it says ubuntu 10.10, but there's a link to a UF thread that is still active:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=958967
especially a user named "mörgaes" is very helpful and has his own thread on sis graphics:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2215422

ubuntu and crunchbang are both debian based, so you should be able to get sth out of these links.

i know, this is not so easy.
if it is a consolation for you, i had a laptop with sis graphics when i was a linux freshman and managed to get the driver working. the hard way.

and, i say it again, you might want to search http://forums.debian.net/search.php
