Help with xrandr display rotation


I need some help switching my display to portrait mode. According to the xrandr documentation
Quote:
xrandr -o right
should work. But it doesn't:
Quote:
root@mantis / # ./usr/X11R6/bin/xrandr -o right
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request: 156 (RANDR)
Minor opcode of failed request: 2 (RRSetScreenConfig)
Serial number of failed request: 12
Current serial number in output stream: 12
I am using the nvidia drivers. I know this monitor can do it, because I tried it on windows.

I'm not even sure it is an option with xrandr unless I do something else:
Quote:
root@mantis / # ./usr/X11R6/bin/xrandr --verbose
SZ: Pixels Physical Refresh
*0 1280 x 1024 ( 342mm x 271mm ) *75 60
1 1024 x 768 ( 342mm x 271mm ) 75 70 60
2 800 x 600 ( 342mm x 271mm ) 75 72 60
3 640 x 480 ( 342mm x 271mm ) 75 72 60
4 1280 x 960 ( 342mm x 271mm ) 60
5 1152 x 864 ( 342mm x 271mm ) 75
6 832 x 624 ( 342mm x 271mm ) 74
7 640 x 512 ( 342mm x 271mm ) 75 60
8 576 x 432 ( 342mm x 271mm ) 75
9 512 x 384 ( 342mm x 271mm ) 75 70 60
10 416 x 312 ( 342mm x 271mm ) 74
11 400 x 300 ( 342mm x 271mm ) 75 72 60
12 320 x 240 ( 342mm x 271mm ) 75 72 60
Current rotation - normal
Current reflection - none
Rotations possible - normal
Reflections possible - none
Setting size to 0, rotation to normal
Setting reflection on neither axis
If there's another way to make the switch, I'd love to hear about it.
