xserver-xorg-video-sis missing

Postby akuankkis » 2017-07-04 03:41

I have laptop with Wheesy and I can't upgrade to new release. Jessie or Stretch has no xserver-xorg-video-sis package.
Is it possible to get it somewhere?

I have one of those relics. Mine has a Via C3 cpu and 512mb. The sis video driver was originally reverse engineered and abandoned. The developer had no support from SiS and very little ($$$) support from the community.

Right now my relic runs with the Sis video driver on NetBSD 7.1/i386. I have to run lean applications like Netsurf.
