AW: sis630s and X
I also have a Gericom laptop with the integrated SiS630 chipset. It works
fine with the
sis-driver and XFree-4.0.1. I didn't try 4.0.3 bu I tried 4.1.0 and it
The real sis driver seems to be a bit faster than the fbdev-driver but
Xv extension avaiable.
Have a look at the webpage of SiS. There's a description how the SiS-chipset
with XFree-4 (I think it was there)

I've got a Gericom laptop with SiS630 and got X Working using svga server.
The conditions for having it working is that you use
FrameBuffer@1024x768x16bits (vga=791 in lilo.conf) and X server also
P.S.: I'm using Xfree 3.3.6 without 3D Accel
