Question X server does not support resizing and rotating


When i try to change resolution (configure display). I get the message "Your x server does not support resizing and rotating the display. Please update to version 4.3 or greater.You need the x resize and rotate extension (RANDR) version 1.1 or greater to use this feature.
I use mdk 10.1 powerpack. ati 9600 pro, 1024mb ram,nforce 2 chipset.
Thanks In advance!!!

The error message is correct.

Your driver must support that function and usually you must enable it in /etc/X11/XF86Config, much like you would other options such as SaveUnders and BackingStore...

Yes, the config file contains ALL of the supported resolution modelines.

You merely need to add a modeline for each supported resolution and then a matching entry under screen.

But this is far different from flipping the screen orientation.

You asked how to do that, and the answer you yourself gave.
