About SiS 6326 Driver:

SiS6326 Rev.B driver for BeBox Beta2 Release Notes

What's new on this release?

1. Now works on R4, R4.5, R4.5.2, R5.0.1, R5.0.3
2. Some bugs fixed.

BUG
1. Sometime Causes SiS6326 HUNG UP while...
Hardware vertical blanking interrupt enabled
and Running application that uses BDirectDraw(i.e. Chart)

So, current driver never enable Hardware vertical blanking interrupt.
Instead, I use 'faked '(BeOS timer interrupt based) vertical blanking interrupt.

REQUIREMENTS
1. BeBox(Rev.6, of cource) or x86 based PC BeOS running.
2.SiS6326 Rev.B based graphics card.

INSTALL
BeBox:
1. Boot your BeBox.
2. Build drivers
(you're in directory where this document is)
$ cd accelerant
$ make install
$ cd ../driver
$ make install
3. Shutdown BeOS, turn your BeBox off.
4. Unplug the power cord and CRT cable from your BeBox.
5. Remove your BeBox cover.
6. Remove your graphics card you're using.
7. Install SiS6326 Rev.B based graphics card to PCI slot and secure the screw.
8. Replace your BeBox cover.
9. Reconnect the power cord to your BeBox, the CRT cable.
10. Turn your BeBox on.

x86:
Typical way: (may vary on your box's configuration)
1. Boot your x86 Box with BeOS(No Win98, Win95, WinNT, and Linux ;-)
2. Build drivers
(you're in directory where this document is)
$ cd accelerant
$ make install
$ cd ../driver
$ make install
3. Shutdown BeOS, turn your x86 off.
4 thru 9 are same as BeBox.
10. Turn your x86 Box, press DEL to activate BIOS menu.(AWARD BIOS)
11. select 'BIOS FEATURES SETUP' and press enter.
12. select 'VGA Boot From' and press '+' to 'PCI' (If your card is PCI)
13. Press ESC
14. Select 'SAVE & EXIT SETUP'
15. Answer 'Y' to 'SAVE to CMOS and EXIT (Y/N)?' dialogue.
16. Press Enter.
... Whew. x86 is diffcult to operate, so xtra 6 step required.

CAVERTS

NO 'Be Boot Menu' WARNING(BeBox only)

This driver cannot display 'Be Boot Menu', so you NEVER drop your
card you're using now.(By now, It is very difficult to get S3 Trio cards
or Matrox Millenium)
