Installing Driver SiS Mirage 3 M671 for Ubuntu 10.10

Just wanted to share just make more friends who cares looking for drivers SiS Mirage 3 M671 to Ubuntu 10.10

First, download the driver here http://db.tt/vH7GMYP

Second, the files are included file “xorg.conf” to Resolution 1366×768, so users with 1280×800 resolution needs a little extra.

Third open the “Terminal / Konsole” and type

Gnome
# sudo nautilus

KDE
# sudo dolphin

XFCE
# sudo thunar

Extract the downloaded file and then

copy the file "sisimedia_drv.so" folder "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/"
copy the file "xorg.conf" to folder "/etc/X11/"

SUPPLEMENT TO USER 1280×800:

Once agan copy the file “xorg.conf” to “/etc/X11/” open the file using a Text Editor on your Ubuntu then DELETE the sentence:

Option "UseTiming1366" "Yes"

After finishing everything, close the file manager then go back to Terminal and press Ctrl + C

Restart your computer and see what happens

    hey hi all,

    i resolved it

    i went to /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/ under root authority from recovery mode and deleted sisimedia_drv.so and any other file starting with sismirage ,,,or something which is related to sismirage

    and i had deleted “xorg.conf” from “/etc/X11/”

    its working fine now .
