Comment 1 Jerry Amundson 2009-04-01 00:33:54 EDT
Left ( and I assume Right) is garbled.
Upside down is, go figure, upside-down, but "no saved backup" - desktop timeouts the "revert" prompt, exits, then autologs-in with an upside down desktop. Hi-f'ing-larious! :-)
Even running gnome-display-properties (upside-down, natch) does not change rot.

System log files (/var/log/{secure,messages,audit,Xorg.0.log})

Experiencing this problem as well.  Attaching log files (/var/log/{secure,messages,audit,Xorg.0.log})

* The screen is garbled for left/right rotation, but looks fine for normal and upside-down.

* When I try to change to another tty to run xrandr manually, it appears that X crashes and returns me to the gdm login prompt
Comment 3 Joachim Frieben 2009-04-01 11:52:52 EDT
Same problem here for QA:Testcase_radeon_rotate:
- Rotate left leads to a garbled display. A screenshot taken at this very
  moment by pressing "Print Screen" looks ok however when displayed a
  posteriori.
- Rotate "upside_down" works but when the timeout for confirming the change
  has elapsed, then the display settings applet reports that it cannot
  switch back to an old configuration, and thus, the desktop stays flipped.
  When enforcing rotate "normal" through the applet, then the session
  terminates abruptly. The only way to restore the normal aspect is to edit
  $HOME/.config/monitors.xml by hand, preferably in a VT, and to restore
  <rotation>normal</rotation>.

Failure notification of the display settings tool

This error notification pops up when "rotate upside_down" had been applied, and the confirmation dialog for permanent change has elapsed without user response.

Xorg.0.log after switching rotation to 'left'.
Comment 8 Maciej Grela 2009-04-02 17:01:55 EDT
Hi,

I have the exact same issue on a Mobility FireGL 9000 chip (testing done for Fedora test day -> http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_radeon_rotate). Switching rotation to left causes the screen to show garbage. I've attached dmesg and Xorg.0.log for my case.
Comment 9 Fran├žois Cami 2009-04-02 17:39:11 EDT
Thanks a lot for the information and the logs.

Closing as DUP of # 493368 .
