Hello every body:
I am trying to get my Xorg to display in portrait mode. I am able to do this but the desktop is never resized. How do I fix this ??
I have fedora 5, 86x_64

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 945G/P Memory Controller Hub (rev 02)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 945G Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

kcmshell display

1. Fedora Core 6 is out. You might wanna upgrade sometime.

2. If you have KDE, there's something in kcmshell display that lets you rotate your screen.
