Description Luis Villa 2007-11-04 18:36:29 UTC
When desktop-effects are not enabled, screen rotation works as expected- screen properly resizes from 1024x768 to 768x1024, and panel and so on resize properly. When desktop-effects are enabled, things go bad, apparently unpredictably- sometimes it seems to resize correctly, but the screen then stops refreshing; other times it does not resize correctly (apparently becoming 768x768), etc. This is problematic for tablet PC users, though of course there is an obvious workaround (turn off desktop effects.)  using the following command: /usr/bin/xrandr --output LVDS --rotate [right|normal]

Really a compiz bug first. Definitely not an XFree86 bug though.

Note that the duplicate bug has extensive X logs, confs, etc., and bug 366211 has all of the same information from my HW.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '8'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
