it's EOL in 2019, or build the driver yourself

  There is no video server for SiS chipsets

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:
  Won't Fix

Bug description:
  I have an old, but still usable laptop with SiS VGA adapter:
  lspci -knn: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Silicon Integrated 
Systems [SiS] 65x/M650/740 PCI/AGP VGA Display Adapter [1039:6325]
  lspci -knn:     Subsystem: Mitac 65x/M650/740 PCI/AGP VGA Display Adapter 

  Unfortunately, after the upgrade to 16.04 version it is used only in the 
completely useless 640x480 resolution.
  I have found, that the xserver-xorg-video-sis package:
  is not available for version 16.04.
