there isn't drivers for video card on my computer or drivers for sis on ubuntu repositories and i know that it is poor supported or one of least supported, and i also have windows installed and on windows the drivers are installed and avaiable.

can i use wine or playonlinux to install those drivers from windows so that i have the drivers installed on ubuntu?

is that possible?

i have ubuntu 12.04 beta so far and ubuntu 11.10 installed

my video card is: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 771/671 PCIE VGA Display Adapter (rev 10) )

from a previous question that i asked How to use Unity 3d and Gnome Shell without any drivers?

Unfortunately you can't do this. What do you mean by no drivers for your computer? Wireless networking, video, Ethernet?

In that case no, you cannot use anything but a pure linux driver for your video card.

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – fossfreedom Apr 28 '12 at 21:41
