> Do you know why the Option "Rotate" in xorg.conf doesn't work for me? ( I tested in ATI driver and Geode driver ), Anyway, I only use the Xrandr operation to rotate screen. I want to use the Xorg.conf -> Option method to rotate screen when start the Xorg. 

Check the allowed values for "Rotate".
I recall that Intel driver only allows 0, 1, 2, 3 for example.
Maybe the ATI and Geode have their own set of allowed values.
