Thnx for the info... I'm currently using the driver from your webpage
(Downloaded and tested yesterday, it works great.)
I have a Sis630 in my CLEVO 2700C Laptop.
I did encounter some small problems, but those were all my faults (for
not reading the instructions well enough).
The only thing I haven't gotten to work is sisfb console. (I used vesafb
upto this week in some high res 132x60 I think). When trying sisfb on
the console I get more 'bleeding' LCD's... but not in X.
So for the moment I use normal VGA console and sisfb in X :)
The Xv acceleration is great, although 3d stuff (mostly
tuxracer/cromium) is still very slow (glxgears gets 120 fps)
This is on a P3-1Ghz
Thanks for the updated drivers, and keep up the good work. I hope your
patches also make it in the debian Xfree packages so I don't have to
patch them again :)
