Last modified: 2009-09-16 16:58:51 EDT
Description of problem:
xrandr fails to work to rotate screen on Toshiba Portege (intel).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL5.4-Client-20090608.2
2. Run "xrandr -o inverted --verbose" while in X.
[root@localhost ~]# xrandr -o inverted --verbose
SZ: Pixels Physical Refresh
*0 1024 x 768 ( 346mm x 260mm ) *60
1 800 x 600 ( 346mm x 260mm ) 60 56
2 640 x 480 ( 346mm x 260mm ) 60
Current rotation - normal
Current reflection - none
Rotations possible - normal
Reflections possible - none
Setting size to 0, rotation to inverted
Setting reflection on neither axis
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request: 156 (RANDR)
Minor opcode of failed request: 2 (RRSetScreenConfig)
Serial number of failed request: 12
Current serial number in output stream: 12
Not a regression.
This originally was noticed on a Toshiba Portege with Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller.
Based on https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=184877 it looks like this is actually supposed to be working.
Anyone know expected current state for this?
This isn't expected to work in RHEL5. That's why "inverted" isn't in the list of possible reflections.
