Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 500281
[nouveau] Does not support static screen rotation.
Last modified: 2009-06-30 17:38:32 EDT
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add Option "Rotate" "CCW" in Monitor section in xorg.conf.
The rotate option is ignored.
Screen should rotate counter-clockwise.

Screenshot when using xrandr -o left
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.
Should be fixed in -37, available from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1359842. Can you confirm?
Looks like the screen rotation problem is fixed, thanks!
Great! Thank you!
