Hi all

I have googled around, asked on the xorg ml and here I am :)

To make it short - I need to use xrandr to rotate the screen when the
vesa driver is used. I think that I need to use ShadowFB to make it
possible in the first step. But what needs to be done to support
xrandr rotation stuff in ShadowFB? Where do I start to program/hack
on it? Or is xrandr stuff already supported?

so many questions, but I am new to xorg development ;)
