If you found where I can download driver sources, I can build a package and submit it.

This driver has a no return in non void function (I have search a solution but I don't understand anything :( )
Why don't you use xf86-video-sis ?

because xf86-video-sis does not support the 771/671 chipset.
If you follow the link in the original request (to suse forum) you can read the whole story. I got them compiled ... link can be found at the end of the thread.

But I don't know what is needed to build a package. If I can help with something let me know.

Unfortunately, it's a warning I can't disable, two files are malformed and a little part of code whose is non void has no return string, and I don't speak the C sorry :(

I pulled the code again and got errors too while compiling.
Looks like they are working on it. Maybe we need to wait a few days and try again.
My already compiled drivers are of no help ?
Is there a way to PM you ? mail/skype ?

Greetings

You can PM me via google/gtalk : p.drouand@gmail.com; IRC on freenode server chan opensuse or opensuse-factory or opensuse-buildservice.
An already compiled driver can't help me because packagers can't used already build from sources binaries. But I will open an issue on github' driver repo.

Regards.
