But after setting the videomode with fbset (the same mode that should be set 
after booting) framebuffer works. So i hoped it can't be that difficult.

Are you sure about the "official" SiS driver? For me the 2.6 SiS driver seem 
to be nearly the same Thomas Winischhofer released on his site. And he stated 
that he had no help from SiS.
