Graphics Acceleration And Xrandr
« on: June 28, 2008, 10:35:53 am »
Hi, I am using yonggun's andromeda image with his 2.6.24 kernel.

I noticed that scrolling and moving windows around is much smoother in portrait mode compared to landscape mode...

Would there be a way to keep the graphic acceleration in landscape mode?


I know this is quite vague, but would be happy to know more about what's happening there..

Thanks!

Portrait is the native orientation of the LCD. There isn't hardware acceleration for rotation in the cxxxx's AFAIK, so in landscape mode everything is rotated 90 degrees in software.

I suppose you could hack the software to render everything rotated 90 degrees natively, but that would be a major pain for what you get.
