There is a driver in Mandriva that supports this card (see https://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=50419).
The source code is here:
The license is MIT. Could it be included in Xorg?
Is there any way that I can help with this bug? By default vga16fb is used and it doesn't allow any resolution higher than 800x600, which is annoying.
Please get the latest from https://bugs.launchpad.net/xorg-server/+bug/301958 which is pointing to http://ajoliveira.com/ajoliveira/uk/software/xorg.php
Note, resolutions higher than 800x600 *are* possible.
Please fix this bug which is more than two years old so the driver can get into the next release and eventually be packaged by Ubuntu to be enjoyed by all.
*** Bug 29668 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Please restore support for this driver. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/debian/+source/xserver-xorg-video-sis/+bug/301958 It was working (somewhat) up to Ubuntu 12.04 but on 12.10 and on 13.04 it does not work anymore.
the work of Antonio J. de Oliveira (ajoliveira) can be used but someone of Xorg should help out on this.
Fixing this would again enable using Xorg on many laptops with Sis 771/671 graphic cards.
I would be more than happy to provide financial support or compensation for whoever fixes this bug. We could create feature request funding at https://www.catincan.com/
Good news, here is a workable driver but without acceleration at the moment:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14848 seems dup of this bug (even though older)

This is just great!
But could anyone please point to the source code with all appropriate patches applied? Is gitorious repo most current?

I'm not sure if this supersede or complement Arch patches though https://github.com/rkrell/xf86-video-sisimedia
