I am using the wvga resistive touch display with the colibri eval V3 board. I have built a custom device tree to set the display to wvga as the native mode outside ov open embedded following the developer pages and can run this by updating with the sdcard.
I have wvga working with this
I also need to rotate the display so it is portrait instead of landscape. I found this information here and tried with rotate “CW” for 90 degree rotation. However when I set xorg.conf the desktop no longer appears. I can still interact through minicom but the display has stopped when bringing up eth0 with a flashing cursor in the bottom left.
Eventually I will be removing X11 and booting directly to a Qt application so I’d like to avoid an X11 centric solution. Can you suggest a different method for rotation?
