XFree 4.3.0 (Debian sid) + xrandr


I'am a user of Debian linux (sid), so my X server is XFree 4.3.0.
My VGA is NVIDIA Geforce 6 6600. The version of driver is 7174.

I want to use the "screen rotation" with xrandr.

I know the configuration of XF86config such that

Option "RandRRotation" "on"

in the "Device" section for the using "pivot" function.

So I applied this configuration, but "xrandr -q" says that the possible orientation is only "normal".

I think that "XFree4.3.0 + NVIDIA 7174" does not support the "screen rotation".

(I know that " 6.8.1 + NVIDIA 7174" supports "screen rotation".)

Any way to use pivot with XFree4.3.0 ?
