How to get a sis 671 card to work ubuntu studio amd64
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):
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"
I Tried adding Driver "sis"
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!
