NVidia X screen rotation

This setting is specific for the NVidia driver. I didn't get screen rotation to work on an Intel Q963/Q965 chipset with xserver-xorg-xserver-i810 driver on Debian Etch when that was stable. I did find some reports of it working with a driver provided by Intel, but that one is still so much in development that it stays in Unstable.

Put into the Device section of xorg.conf:

Option "RandRRotation" "true"

Then use xrandr to rotate the screen: xrandr -o left
