Hello Debian folks

I get stuck in xf86config specifying the videoCard.

As I read in postings I should choose xserver-sis,
but can't find the right place for doing so.
Both files are present:
Is xserver-sis still relevant,
or was that for older Debian versions?
Thanx for any hint to continue the install
Start with checking the output of 'lspci -vv' to get the "real name" of
your chipset. I'm not doubting your information here, but I always do
this to be certain.
Also, I believe that the selection of the modules is related to XFree86
version 3.X and not 4.X. In Version 4, all(?) the modules where
incorporated into a unified set. You do need to identify the driver,
but that's during the xfree86 configuration.
As an alternative, try using the xfree86 --configure script to build
your config file. It might not be perfect, but it will be informative.
