On-the-fly Rotation in FC5

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

I have not been able to duplicate this. I am using the stock Fedora server with the xorg-x11-drv-i810- 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

Running $ xrandr -o 3 results in:

$ xrandr -o 3
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

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: 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. ~Loki
