I got it to work with the nvidia drivers. I think radeon also supports rotation.
Do the following in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

  • Set your default color depth to 24 (it only works with 24bit colors)
  • Add Option "RandRRotation" "on" to your Device section
  • Make sure you don't have xorg 6.8.2 X server, because than you can rotate the display,
    but cannot get the resolution to the correct setting.
  • Restart the X server
  • Open a console, start xrandr and search the possible rotation line, which should
    show at least two possible rotations. :)

If something goes wrong, try to find a warning or error in your /var/log/Xorg.0.log...

Hope this helps!?
