SIS M671 Binary 32BIT - Natty 11.04

Here's the binary, you can do old dirty hack by copy it directly to /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/

Please send a feedback when using it, This binary is a little bit different, so please make sure you don't have any xorg.conf inside your /etc/X11 dir. Or it will not run, but if you have a "unique" resolution, try to configure the xorg.conf.

I will bring up a new binary compiled in natty, also if it possible in .deb package.

Edit:
Beside creating a deb package which is i'm still dunno how to do it right, i modify an install script from here. Actually, i just modify it a bit :) and using bash instead of sh.

Download the script, extract it, Open terminal and go to the download folder
and then

$sudo ./sismedia_install_11.04.sh

Here's the download link

Driver SIS M671 / M672 For upcoming Natty Narthwal / Xorg-Server 1.10

Thanks & Credit to :
Paulo Zaunoni for the patch
Willian Gustavo for the support
AJ. Oliveira for inspiring me to keep using this Hardware
People from Forum-Ubuntu-Indonesia to accompany me all times ( Especially for thrvers & saa7_go )
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As you know xorg-server is released just a couple days ago. And also an upcoming release from Ubuntu 11.04. So this driver will work on Ubuntu 11.04, tested and work!

Ps. There's a little bit different from older driver. Old driver we only copy the driver to it directory. So in this one you must configure it by yourself. The positive side is, you don't have to mess up with xorg.conf again.
I assume you already know how to build a package and have all needed package for this build

Build - Package
- git
- xorg-dev
- mesa-common-dev
- libdrm-dev
- libtool
i forgot the other package name, just remind me if i need to put other -dev packages.

This sources already pre-patched by me so you don't have to patch it again. The patch folder is for all of you who want to help keeping this driver alive for further. Let's fire up the terminal and start the build

$ git clone git://github.com/hellnest/xf86-video-sismedia-0.9.1.git
$ cd xf86-video-sismedia-0.9.1
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-static
$ make
$ sudo make install

Reboot! and you done.

There's some special notice for user with 1366x768 resolution, you need to put this line on xorg.conf ( just make one if it not exist)


Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Configured Video Device"
    Option         "UseTiming1366" "yes"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier     "Configured Monitor"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Default Screen"
    Monitor        "Configured Monitor"
    Device         "Configured Video Device"
EndSection
 
Ok, that's all.. I hope that you can enjoy this release. Thanks once again for Paulo zaunoni for this patch.. I really owe you a lot.

Solver Manifesto


The Solvers'
Manifesto

by Nuno Simaria | February 13th 2011
We, programmers who have learned how to combine fonts, shapes and colors so you could offer your client a professional looking interface. We,designers who have learned how to edit video and mix audio so you could have an effective commercial for your company. We, AV technicians who have learned how to build a webpage so you could have your trailer on the internet without spending a dime.
We are here.
We are not programmers. They don't have to make banners based on your nephew’s drawing. We are not designers. They don't have to know how to post-produce a film. We are not AV technicians. They don't have to worry about validating your 30 field form using JavaScript so you can sell your movie online.
We are many.
Yet, we still don't know what we are. We are not multimedia engineers, because we are not engineers. We are not IT experts. Experts don't get paid two beers and a cheeseburger. We are not art directors, they get a lot more respect.
We are not jobless, yet there is no name for what we do. And because of that, our craft hasn't earned any respect. We are not the computer guy. We are not the girl that knows how to draw. We are not the smart intern.
We are multi taskers.
We are fast learners.
We are good listeners.
We are self taught.
We are good people, because we care about your problems, and we fix them.
We are solvers.
We know how to do anything. If we don't know how to do it, we know how to go about getting it done. And if that doesn't work either, we know a lot more people like us. A solver that will help us, and will teach us how to do it.
We learn from each other.
We help each other.
We teach each other.
We recognize each other.
We are a tribe.
We don't care about your corporative lingo, as you don't care about our obscure movie references. We don't care about your suits, as you don't care about our t-shirts with geeky puns. But we respect you, and you should respect us. Like you respect a doctor, a teacher, a mechanic or a plumber. You wouldn't second guess a doctor. You wouldn't tell a mechanic to "keep that part, its old but I like it that way".
Some of us are big time CEOs, some of us have earned some credit in small circles, usually populated by people like ourselves. But most of us are exploited, doing odd jobs for you just because we are the only ones that know how to do it.
You can't graduate on what we do. We can't teach you how to do it.
We are curious, critics of our job, thinkers. We have learned from many people and we've tried and erred until we got it. We are persistent. We work when you've left. We are experts in nothing, yet we know a great deal about almost anything.
We are Solvers. That's what we do. We solve your problems. As fast as we can.
We are Solvers. We like what we do.
Just show some appreciation once in a while.

Linux Compatibility Hardware database from Canonical Ltd.


We must say thanks to Canonical and also  Ubuntu community to help spread the words for Open Source. Just when Nokia decided to stick with Microsoft and abandon Meego Project, Canonical make an announcement about they hardware database which is compatible for ubuntu and also all Linux Distribution. So it's mean that people now can choose the hardware before they install Linux.

Well, it's seem the future of Open Source is getting brighter, and also people will much more easier migrate and using Linux as they main OS. So what we can do as a part of Linux community? Spread the words, and keep friendly for all new comers in Linux world. Don't act like we are super smart human and people who not yet use Linux is a dumb :) that's a very wrong perspective ^^...

Two thumbs up for canonical! Once again, thank you for the innovation & evolution for promoting Linux to the world :)
