I've been trying for sometime to install SiS 771/671 PCIE drivers and couldn't find any info. Sis web page doesn't have a specific driver for this board, I has drivers only for Sis 650/740 and 630/730 boards and Redhat only. Anyone has any idea on how I install these drivers ?

Thanks :)

You've to install driver provided by Xorg. It would be already installed in your system. The xserver-xorg-video-sis driver which is provided by Xorg works for all types of sis display cards.. The Synaptic says about xserver-xorg-video-sis: This package provides the driver for all SiS and XGI Volari cards. If its not installed already you can install by: sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-sis –  Saurav Kumar Oct 21 '13 at 1:39

The display driver for sis would be already installed in Ubuntu

xserver-xorg-video-sis is the display driver for all Sis and XGI video driver.

To check if this is installed or not you can execute this command:

sudo dpkg -l | grep xserver-xorg-video-sis

If it doesn't list any value then you can install it by:

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-sis

You can find more about the SIS display driver at X.org site.
