I'm still stuck debugging the SIS300 DRI driver. Without more info it is
rather hard and I can only do it as part-time job (if it was 10 years
ago I would grab on to it until I succeeded but I have a job now)
***** Please send me any info on the insides of any SIS 3D chips, even
outdated one *****
(I'm a newbie as a Linux user but I work as a C and assembly language
programmer since 1982)
