Existe alguma lançamento do Ubuntu que instalará (e execute) em um computador antigo com um chipset de vídeo integrado SIS 651? É um problema de saber em 12.10. Não parece ser mencionado em nenhuma das notas de versão posteriores.
Is there any release of Ubuntu that will install (and run) on an older computer with an SiS 651 integrated video chipset? It's a know problem on 12.10. It doesn't seem to be mentioned in any of the later release notes.
Answering my own question after some work: The problem is SORT OF fixed in 14.10 (and possibly 13.xx). I was able to install, but it will only use an 800X600 display. I guess it's time to update my old hardware, sigh!
According to the manpages for the sis package.
The sis driver supports PCI, AGP and PCIe video cards based on the following chipsets:
SiS5597/5598 SiS530/620 SiS6326/AGP/DVD SiS300/305 SiS540 SiS630/730 SiS315/E/H/PRO SiS550/551/552 SiS650/651/661/741 SiS330 (Xabre) SiS760/761 XGI Volari V3/V5/V8 XGI Volari Z7
Besides bugs the 651 is supported and has been since at least 2008. Though you might need to manually configure it.
It is hardware from Microsoft... if possible replacing it or adding another video card might be a better option.
