    I found some debs that are supposed to work with xorg 1.20 (ie antiX-19 and latest bullseye alpha1).

    Could anyone needing this driver please test.

    You only need to install one sis671 deb for your architecture

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    In case if they are wondering 32 bit or not. i386 deb is 32 bit for novices. all deb should be ok for 32 bit also.

    so far not on my pc so far.
    I’ve tried several drivers with no luck.
    the vesa is working ok on bullseye on it though.
    here is a screenshot of the hard ware for others to
    compare it to. and an output of the xorg log
    from the sis671 driver above.

    Normal == 🙂

    I forgot to mention that you will also need to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf to something like this.

    Section "ServerLayout" 
      Identifier "Xorg Configured" 
      Screen "Monitor" 
    EndSection
    
    Section "Files" 
      FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/corefonts" 
      FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/misc" 
      FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/droid" 
    EndSection
    
    Section "Module" 
      Load "GLcore"
      Load "ddc"
      Load "int10"
      Load "vbe"
      Load "i2c" 
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor" 
      Identifier "Sis671VGA" 
      Vendorname "Sis671LCD" 
      Modelname "LCD Panel 1366x768" 
      Horizsync 31.5-50.0
      Vertrefresh 56.0 - 65.0
    EndSection
    
    Section "Device" 
      Identifier "Device1" 
      Boardname "SiS M671 [sis671]" 
      Screen 0
      Driver "sis671"
    
      Option "UseTiming1366" "on"
      Option "TurboQueue" "on"
      Option "FastVram" "on"
      Option "UseFBDev" "true"
      Option "EnableSisCtl" "yes"
      Option "XvDefaultDisableGfxLR" "no"
      Option "XvOnCRT2" "yes"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen" 
      Identifier "Monitor" 
      Device "screen0" 
      Monitor "Configured Monitor" 
      DefaultDepth 24
      Subsection "Display" 
        Viewport 0 0
        Depth 24
        Modes "1366x768@60" 
      EndSubsection
    EndSection
    
    Section "DRI"
      Mode 0666
    EndSection 
    
    Section "Extensions" 
      Option "Composite" "off" 
    EndSection

    or a simpler one:

    Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Configured Video Device"
        Driver          "sis671"
    EndSection
    Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "Configured Monitor"
    EndSection
    Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "Default Screen"
        Monitor         "Configured Monitor"
        Device          "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection

    If installed on a live USB with persistence, it may be easier to use the boot parameter
    xorg=sis671
    and see if it boots with sis drivers

    If this post is wrong, please remove mu comment.

    thanks anti and xecure.

    I did have the drivers “sis671” line in xorg.conf
    this is a sis760lv chip as the main north bridge chip on
    the mobo. I get the same error on sisimedia driver too.
