    Default How to install video driver

    I downloaded a video driver from www.sis.com; It is a linux driver and is an executable fle.

    How do I install it?

    I attempted to use modprobe and that fails. Here is a cut and paste of what happens:
    Abitbox:/home/gary # ls -l /home/gary/Desktop/X*
    -rwxrwxr-x 1 gary users 2979244 2000-02-17 04:07 /home/gary/Desktop/XSiS_SVGA
    Abitbox:/home/gary #
    Abitbox:/home/gary # modprobe /home/gary/Desktop/XSiS_SVGA
    FATAL: Module /home/gary/Desktop/XSiS_SVGA not found.
    Abitbox:/home/gary #

    Which driver to you grab? I don't see any driver on their site with the XSiS_SVGA name you mention.

    xsis.tgz

    xsis.rpm

    They both contain XSiS.SVGA which is a linux executable.

    Start at this url:, then
    1. step 1 - linux
    2. step 2 - IGP graphics drivers
    3. step 3 - sis630 sis730 series
