How to get a sis 671 card to work ubuntu studio amd64


Hi,

I have a laptop with a sis 671 graphics card installed (what idiot specked a laptop with a sis card for linux I will never know!), I cannot get a higher res than 800x600.

xorg.conf only has the following (relevant section only):

Section "device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"
EndSection

I Tried adding Driver "sis"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
And various variations to "Device", I have also in one attempt added res and depth strings to "Screen", adding subsection "display"s. This always results in a fatal X error, no device found, or no screens found.

I need to deliver the laptop this weekend and I am still struggling with res!

Please help me here!

Thanks
Peet

Even just a man page link on how to set it up would be appreciated - I need to hand the laptop over on Friday and this is th only problem I still have on this machine.
Thanks
Peet
