Using Gnome 2.14 and xorg-x11-drv-i810-1.4.1.3-4.cvs20060322, On-the-fly rotation does work.

I have not been able to duplicate this. I am using the stock Fedora X.org server with the xorg-x11-drv-i810-1.4.1.3-4.cvs20060322 driver mentioned above.

Running $ xdpyinfo returns:

name of display:    :0.0
version number:    11.0
vendor string:    The X.Org Foundation
vendor release number:    70000000
X.Org version: 7.0.0
[...]
number of extensions:    32
    RANDR
    RENDER
    Composite

[...]

Running $ xrandr -o 3 results in:

$ xrandr -o 3
Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)

Minor opcode of failed request:  2 (RRSetScreenConfig)

It should be possible with version 1.6+ of the i810 driver. You can build this from the CVS repository, but it will not build properly on anything less than X11R7.0-RC2. ~Loki


I tried today's CVS/GIT [Xorg + IntelGrapicsDriver, 15.4.2006]. It doesn't work. ~Mcfrost


Try this:

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/idpl/2756697/com/xorg-x11-drv-i810-1.6.0-1.i386.rpm.html http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/idpl/2756771/com/xorg-x11-drv-i810-1.6.0-1.x86_64.rpm.html

You should be able to fix any unresolved dependencies with other rpms on that site, which likely means upgrading your X server package as well. Read the updated man page that comes with the RPM for more info. ~Loki
