Question SiS 6326 AGP Video Card


I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get drivers for this card. I am running Fedora Core 1 on a 560MHz P3 with 256 MB RAM and 80 Gig HD. Everything else detected on start up but the screen remained black on this video card. Any drivers? Any ideas?

I used to run an SiS 6326 AGP card in a box with Redhat 7.3, so you should be able to get it to work. I don't really recall what I had to do to get it running, as it was my first Linux fileserver, dns etc. and that was a while ago. I did have X running on it though, so I thought I would let you know that it can work.

Have you checked out Thomas Winischofer's site? http://www.winischhofer.net/linuxsisvga.shtml

Yeah, I sure have and I by using that I got it working. I think that is the only site out there for this type of card. I feel really lucky.

Thanks for the help man.
