I had a SiS laptop (Acer Aspire 3000) a while ago.  I don't recall any particular issues running Arch.  The X driver is just 'sis'.  It should work fine.

Re: SiS Chipset based Laptops?

I had one also, the driver is stable, but slow.
It ran KDE and office applications fine, but expect low performance if you want to play dvds and such.


Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

SiS sucks, stay away at all costs.

What a pain. However, it is not impossible. If you need any specific help just ask!
