Description of problem:
SIS-65x graphics cards are supported in XFree-4.3.0, but redhat-config-xfree86
doesn't have that in the list, instead selecting the generic VESA driver when
I have an SIS-651 card, but the -650 doesn't appear in the list either.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a machine with an sis-650 family card
2. Run redhat-config-xfree86
3. Configure the video card
Actual Results: SIS-651 not in the list, and not autoprobed.
Expected Results: SIS-651 is selectable both manually, and is correctly detected.
See http://www.winischhofer.net/linuxsisvga.shtml for the list of supported cards.
lspci -n gives '01:00.0 Class 0300: 1039:6325', which is '01:00.0 VGA compatible
controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS650/651/M650/740 PCI/AGP VGA
I did an FTP upgrade, so it was in text mode and therefore I don't know if the
graphical installer would have misdetected this too.
What is the output of 'ddcprobe'? (Must run as root)
Videocard DDC probe results

Nevermind about the ddcprobe.
The problem was that a change needed to be made to pcitable and a new entry
created in Cards for the SiS 650 card. Things should work in hwdata-0.81-1,
which should appear in Rawhide in a week or so.
I don't have this card in house, so I can't test these changes out for sure. I
would appreciate it if you could test on your machine to see if the
autodetection is fixed now.

Instead of waiting on Rawhide, you could copy those two files I just attached
into /usr/share/hwdata and see if the autodetection works now.
Please reopen this report if that doesn't fix the problem.
Yep, that works, thanks.
