Mind telling me if you at any point have used acceleration with your SiS graphic card, f.e. as in my case for watching local (on hdd) movies? Are you able to do such thing with your alternatives right now?

Yep, even with ShadowFB I have Xv, so watching movies is perfectly possible. What ShadowFB doesn't provide is 3D accel, but Linux never had any 3D support for my particular SiS chip, so no loss there.

Lucky then that you are able to use ShadowFB, even though one has to bear in mind that we are talking about different hardware, SiS vs S3 SuperSavage.

Re: Broken video after graphic packages update (savage + xorg files)

I reverted to an older xorg version, installed xorg-server1.12 from aur and rebuild the driver (i had to modify the PKGBUILD to set the appropriate version.)


If it ain't broke, broke it then fix it.

@Maki

So what is your driver situation right now?

If you merely returned to the pre-1.13 xorg package group, wouldn't it have been much easier to do what you did using the Arch Rollback Machine? wink
