Description of problem:
xrandr fails to work to rotate screen on Toshiba Portege (intel). 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL5.4-Client-20090608.2
2. Run "xrandr -o inverted --verbose" while in X.
Actual results:
[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

Comment 1 Suzanne Hillman 2009-06-12 14:24:50 EDT
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.
