Description Ding-Yi Chen 2009-05-12 03:21:42 UTC
Description of problem:
Drive nv supports static screen rotation by adding
Option "Rotate" "CCW" (or other orientation) 
in Monitor section of xorg.conf

However, in nouveau, this option is simply ignore.
Indeed, screen rotation is achievable by xrandr, 
but it is slower and more problematic than static rotation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add Option "Rotate" "CCW" in Monitor section in xorg.conf.
2. startx
Actual results:
The rotate option is ignored.

Expected results:
Screen should rotate counter-clockwise.

Thanks, now the option are recognized,  but still not working.
When given the option "Rotate" "left", the display area shrink as a line at bottom left of screen.
I can tell it successfully enter KDE as the "line" change color, but still not usable at this point.
