>> 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.

Maybe the ATI and Geode have their own set of allowed values.

[Cui, Hunk] There was a complaint about invalid rotation type, so I looked in the Geode-driver source code (lxdriver.c:LXPreInit()), the values only allow LEFT, INVERT, CCW, then the values can be transferred to xf86SetDesiredModes, but it doesn't work. :(
