When I put in my grub configuration:
and consequently get framebuffer for the console, then xorg vesa driver not render properly, and the fbdev xorg driver stops working the DPMS.
But If I comment that grub line, evething works fine.
The problem is that I use a lot a framebuffer console, and also xorg.
Thanks in advance.
Your best bet is going to be to build the sisfb module for your kernel. That's usually a bit of a pain, but you're in luck, because I wanted to figure out how to do DKMS for in-tree modules... and so I present to you the brand new AUR package linux-sisfb-dkms .
Now, I don't actually have a compatible card to test it with, but it modprobes okay so I think I did it right. Anyway, install that, ensure it automatically loads on boot by adding it to modules-load.d, and configure it to use the video mode you want according to the docs . That'll typically be something like the following in a modprobe.d snippet:
options sisfb mode=1024x768x32
Hope that all gets you working!
