hi, I have some issues after the last update of xf86 packages, I can't use the sis mirage driver, and Vesa is load by default
I put "sisimedia" on my xorg.conf, but is the same. my screen is 1280x800 but the max resolution I have is 1024x768
here is my xorg.0.log

I got this error using 'Xorg -configure' saying that hardware don't match , something like this:
(EE) module ABI major version (12) doesn't match the server's version (13) .............. number of created screens does not match number of detected devices. configuration failed server terminated with error (2) closing log file.
trying to install the AUR sis driver I got this

This driver hasn't been maintained in a long time now, and anyway it was pretty much a hack since the beginning. Since it's unmaintained, someone who has the hardware will need to update it for xorg-server-1.13 themselves. Tho things are needed: update for the new API required for xrandr1.4, and update for the removal of XAA from the server.
Though if someone is actually going to spend serious time on this, my suggestion would be to add support for these chips to the regular xf86-video-sis driver.
