Hello,

I have checked the kernel support
Code:

Device Drivers  --->
    Graphics support  --->
        <*> /dev/agpgart (AGP Support)  --->
            <*>   SiS chipset support


, have changed the file /etc/portage/make.conf
Code:

..
VIDEO_CARDS="sis"
..


,but when I execute the code
Code:

emerge --pretend --verbose x11-base/xorg-drivers

I get the result without sis drivers
Code:

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies  ... done!
[ebuild   R    ] x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.20-r1::gentoo 
INPUT_DEVICES="keyboard libinput mouse -elographics -evdev -joystick -synaptics -vmmouse -void -wacom"
VIDEO_CARDS="-amdgpu -ast -dummy -fbdev (-freedreno) (-geode) -glint -i915 -i965 -intel -mga -nouveau -nv -nvidia (-omap) -qxl -r128 -radeon -radeonsi -siliconmotion (-tegra) (-vc4) -vesa -via -virtualbox -vmware" 0 KiB

Total: 1 package (1 reinstall), Size of downloads: 0 KiB

Please explain to me how to achieve a resolution of 1366x768?

iurii,

The simple answer is that the sis driver you need is no longer in the portage tree.
I suspect that means that Xorg is using the modesetting driver, so you need to configure Xorg if its not using the native resolution for your display.

The more complex answer, not tested, is that you need the xf86-video-sis671 ebuild in your local overlay.
Then
Code:
emerge xf86-video-sis671
to try to install it.

The sis driver is removed from tree, but seems exists a version that work in new xorg-server-1.20 https://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/xf86-video-sis/

I understood and I have already gone in this direction. I performed the following :

1.
Code:
mkdir -p /usr/local/portage/x11-drivers/xf86-video-sis671

2.
Code:
cd /usr/local/portage/x11-drivers/xf86-video-sis671

3.
Code:
wget http://www.calculate-linux.ru/attachments/2432/xf86-video-sis671-0.10.4-r1.ebuild

4.
Code:
ebuild xf86-video-sis671-0.10.4-r1.ebuild digest

5.
Code:
echo "PORTDIR_OVERLAY=/usr/local/portage $PORTDIR_OVERLAY" >> /var/lib/layman/make.conf

5a.i have added into /etc/portage/make.conf
Code:
PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage"

6.
Code:
eix-sync

7.
Code:
echo "x11-drivers/xf86-video-sis671 ~amd64" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords/custom

8.
Code:
emerge -av xf86-video-sis671

9.i have added in my xorg.conf
Code:
Section "Device"
...
   Driver "sis671"
   Option "UseTiming1366" "yes"
..
EndSection


And I have a resolution of 1368x768 8O now instead of 1366x768.
Thank You for your support :D
