I am glad the runtime screen resize is now working.
It is embarrassing that this significant of a bug went into the repository code
probably due to lack of testing.
As I have promised back in late February, it took time to figure out why this
was happening, and to be honest, it took me a lot of time to identify the area
of the code that was directly contributing to this crash.
    As for rotation support, I will add it to the wishlist, but I will going to
have to give it a low priority since OpenChrome still has too many problems as
a graphics device driver, and fixing those other problems will likely take
Personally, it is my view that features not implemented should be disabled
since it leads to a crash anyway, and rotation feature should be handled this
If I read it correctly, most VIA IGPs since UniChrome Pro have hardware
rotation support.
If there is going to be rotation support, it will have to be via the rotation
Since you think I can close the bug, I will close the bug shortly.
