You will need an xorg.conf file to get the display nice. You won't get 3D accelleration with such a low power chip so no compiz

I bodged that together using websearches in a matter of minutes. If you can't do stuff like this you shouldn't be using Alpha releases.

I'd use the xorg.conf I made, if not then try telling it to use the vesa driver instead of sis671. If that is bad, rename the xorg.conf file and try the guide. Should be fine.

whit vesa video quality is extremely poor :S

I prefer to keep 800x600

wait October 10 ....someone will post the SiS 771 driver for linux

VESA is absolutely ridiculous :/

Can you help with this problem?
