    I'm using a rotated display and was trying to getting console (not X) output in the right orientation. It looks like fbcon is compiled in the kernel:

    Code:
    # find /sys -name fbcon
    /sys/devices/virtual/graphics/fbcon
    /sys/class/graphics/fbcon
    but when I try to change the orientation, nothing happens:

    Code:
    echo 3 > /sys/class/graphics/fbcon/rotate_all
    Am I missing something? Is there an easier way to do console rotation?

    FYI I have resolved this problem. This requires the kernel to be compiled with CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE_ROTATION. Once I did that, things worked as expected.
