Title: SparkyLinux with Chipset SiS 661/741/760
Post by: dodcel on March 11, 2022, 09:53:49 PM
Hi.
I'm with SparkyLinux 4.13 64 bits and it's working great and with a resolution of 1024x768.

Would like to upgrade to SparkyLinux 5.16 LXQt.
But there is a problem when using Debian 10 based distributions.
The resolution is stuck at 640x480, and has no other options.
Already tried with Debian 10 and SparkyLinux 5.16.

Would anyone have any tips?
Thanks!

I have to find a solution.
Sparky 4 will be supported until June 2022.
I even did a test to upgrade from SparkyLinux 4 to 5 but without success, I installed SparkyLinux 4.13 again.
The problem is in the update from Xorg 1.19 to 1.20.
In distributions with Debian 10 and 11, with Xorg 1.20 the resolution is 640x480.

I had to install SparkyLinux 5.16 LXQt for the sake of support time that version 4 ends in 2022.
