  I´m having some drawing and color problems using SiS 6326 card, wich appears in the card list of xf86setup. I have played with the options in the device section of the XF86Config file and I have also downloaded the XFCom_SiS file, but it still not works. Anyone can help me ? Thanks in advance.

jefflans: i had the same problem with the same card. (Assuming that you installed Xf86 properly) you need to edit /etc/X11/XF86Config

  Serena, when I try to enabled the "no_accel" option, the server do not start. I´ll try it again and I´ll report you the error tomorrow. (now in Brazil it´s 6:10pm and I´m leaving...). If it works, I´ll accept you answer. Thanks for your help.

serena77, please re-post your answer 'case I solved the problem and one of the tasks that I had to do was to enabled the no_accel Option (the other was set the VideoRam properly), so I´ll accept that answer. Thank you very much!
