How to rotate screen by 90° with Voodoo Graphics Card?


I just installed my new LCD-Monitor. I would like to rotate it by 90° (Pivot-Mode) and found out that it should be possible with xrandr.

xrandr -q

shows only "Rotations possible - normal".
Do I have to change something in my xorg.conf? I am using Slackware 10.2 with Xorg 6.8.2. My graphics card is a 3dfx Voodoo3. I am using the tdfx driver with a resolution of 1280x1024.

Many thanks, Sönke

On reading the xrandr man page, it looks like all you need to do is 'xrandr -o inverted' to make the flip.
