DRI issues on Suse 9.3 pro for SiS630 chip

Hi all,

i'm having some trouble enabling DRI on my Suse9.3pro install on a celeron 1700 pc with SiS630 gfx chip.

As far as i know, i am doing everything right because i did the same thing on an AMD with S3 ProSavage chip, and everything works fine, using the samen method.

I tried compiling the SiS driver on my AMD box, and this also doesn't seem to work so i guess there is something wrong with the snapshot packages (sis-20050718-linux.i386.tar.bz2 and sis-20050714-linux.i386.tar.bz2)...

The install on the AMD/S3 box was with the savage-20050718-linux.i386.tar.bz2 package...

This is the dri.log from the script... ->

make DRM_MODULES=sis.o modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/tmp/dripkg/drm/linux-core'
make -C /lib/modules/ SUBDIRS=`pwd` DRMSRCDIR=`pwd` modules
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-'
CC [M] /tmp/dripkg/drm/linux-core/sis_drv.o
/tmp/dripkg/drm/linux-core/sis_drv.c:62: error: `sis_PCI_IDS' undeclared here (not in a function)
/tmp/dripkg/drm/linux-core/sis_drv.c:62: error: initializer element is not constant
/tmp/dripkg/drm/linux-core/sis_drv.c:62: error: (near initialization for `pciidlist[0]')
make[3]: *** [/tmp/dripkg/drm/linux-core/sis_drv.o] Error 1
make[2]: *** [_module_/tmp/dripkg/drm/linux-core] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-'
make[1]: *** [modules] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/dripkg/drm/linux-core'
make: *** [sis.o] Error 2

I hope someone can help me as this is really driving me insane... but it won't force me to use windows to play games though...
