Hi everyone 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
How to resolve that problem?
Sorry for my english.
Crunchbang is working faster then other system,thereon I'd like to remain on it.

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".

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".

uvcvideo is the module for the webcam

output of xrandr
prodius@AsusK50c:~$ xrandr xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768 default connected 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm 1024x768 61.0* 800x600 61.0 640x480 60.0
what about xorg.conf in /etc/X11/ directory ?
Is it deleted in crunchbang ?
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.
