Description Bradley 2003-04-08 14:36:20 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030401 Description of problem: SIS-65x graphics cards are supported in XFree-4.3.0, but redhat-config-xfree86 doesn't have that in the list, instead selecting the generic VESA driver when probing. I have an SIS-651 card, but the -650 doesn't appear in the list either. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): redhat-config-xfree86-0.7.3-2 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Have a machine with an sis-650 family card 2. Run redhat-config-xfree86 3. Configure the video card Actual Results: SIS-651 not in the list, and not autoprobed. Expected Results: SIS-651 is selectable both manually, and is correctly detected. Additional info: See http://www.winischhofer.net/linuxsisvga.shtml for the list of supported cards. lspci -n gives '01:00.0 Class 0300: 1039:6325', which is '01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS650/651/M650/740 PCI/AGP VGA Display Adapter' I did an FTP upgrade, so it was in text mode and therefore I don't know if the graphical installer would have misdetected this too.

What is the output of 'ddcprobe'? (Must run as root)

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2003-05-21 21:48:33 UTC
Nevermind about the ddcprobe. The problem was that a change needed to be made to pcitable and a new entry created in Cards for the SiS 650 card. Things should work in hwdata-0.81-1, which should appear in Rawhide in a week or so. I don't have this card in house, so I can't test these changes out for sure. I would appreciate it if you could test on your machine to see if the autodetection is fixed now.

Instead of waiting on Rawhide, you could copy those two files I just attached into /usr/share/hwdata and see if the autodetection works now.
Comment 7 Brent Fox 2003-05-21 21:55:42 UTC
Please reopen this report if that doesn't fix the problem.
Comment 8 Bradley 2003-05-22 10:51:24 UTC
Yep, that works, thanks.
