 SIS790

Brand: Silicon Integrated Systems (Graphics/Video/TV card)

Release: Isadora
Status: Works partially

What works:

You gain a video signal which you can work with. It's default on a resolution of 800x600. That's, of course, to low. You can't make the resolution higher (except with xorg.conf). You are able to play 2D-games but 3D games like (the tested) Freds on Fire aren't playable.
You can easily watch videos or photos.

What doesn't work:

The fabricator don't give you a good driver. There is just an driver which you can't use.
Anywhere is a programmer of SIS who can send per E-Mail a working driver.
In the xorg.conf you can do a resolution of 1024x768 (4:3). You are lost if you have a monitor with a needed resolution of (16:10; 16:9).

What was done to make it work:

Go in the xorg.conf.
/etc/x11/xorg.conf
Open this data and make sure that it looks like this:
(only the "Screen"-Section! The rest should be left as it was!)

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "S19-1"
DefaultDepth 16
SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768"
EndSubSection
EndSection

Save and restart your machine. Now it should display a resolution of 1024x768.

Additional notes:

Never buy a SIS-Videocard!
