I gave myself a little break and only today I sat down again. But it can not be easy - all the time uphill.

I downloaded and unzipped driver - but when I try to ./configure it an error appears - error refers to the time of created files.

I thought I dealt with this error, but that would be too beautiful...

I search for this error - http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=6671.0 so I will try fight on

EDIT:it's probably over my head, and certainly beyond my abilities.

Have you checked if you can rotate your screen using the modesetting driver?

To test, load graphics-KERNEL and Xorg-7.7, but do not load any other xf86-video* drivers. Then try this from a terminal window:
Code: [Select]
$ xrandr -o left
$ xrandr -o normal

It works for me with intel hd4400 graphics

No, I didn't tried modesetting driver.

Probably this is a stupid question but how to load the graphics-KERNEL??? Can you send me some tutorial or something else which can help me load the graphics-KERNEL?

If someone tell me how to make it - I will definitely.

I have load Xorg-7.7 and I think I have idea how I can load graphics-KERNEL. I'm going to check it out.

Boot to a console prompt or exit to a console prompt and then:
Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -i graphics-KERNEL Xorg-7.7
$ startx
$ xrandr -o left
$ xrandr -o normal

EDIT okay - I downloaded what was not found.

and btw, the xorg.conf snippet to get things to work on my machine is:
Code: [Select]
$ cat /usr/local/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-rotate-left.conf
Section "Monitor"
   Identifier "<defaultmonitor>"
   Option "Rotate" "left"
EndSection

Monitor name found by looking at Xorg.0.log:
Code: [Select]
$ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log
...
[  8985.808] (==) No screen section available. Using defaults.
[  8985.808] (**) |-->Screen "Default Screen Section" (0)
[  8985.808] (**) |   |-->Monitor "<default monitor>"
[  8985.808] (==) No monitor specified for screen "Default Screen Section".
...

Xrandr did not work

https://imgur.com/a/vjIm4VI - https://postimg.cc/gallery/2n4zmdl4i/4988de47/

Ok. I will make the same file as you have

EDIT

I make file file 10-rotate-left.conf

https://postimg.cc/gallery/1ogcvcqwi/2636f25b/ -https://imgur.com/a/PzJLTGy

After that I go to Shutdown -> Exit to Prompt and write this command

Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -i graphics-KERNEL Xorg-7.7
$ startx

and in terminal window I try xrandr -o left

OK - I guess that means your graphics chipset is not supported by the modesetting driver and it falls back to the vesa driver, which does not support rotation.

If you look in /var/log/Xorg.0.log, what do you see in this section:
Code: [Select]
[  8985.827] (==) Matched intel as autoconfigured driver 0
[  8985.827] (==) Matched modesetting as autoconfigured driver 1
[  8985.827] (==) Matched fbdev as autoconfigured driver 2
[  8985.827] (==) Matched vesa as autoconfigured driver 3

EDIT I have to go out for an hour because I'm contracted, but when I come back, I'll try
to follow your advice.

OK, so you have:
Code: [Select]
[    62.195] (==) Matched geode as autoconfigured driver 0
[    62.195] (==) Matched modesetting as autoconfigured driver 1
[    62.195] (==) Matched fbdev as autoconfigured driver 2
[    62.195] (==) Matched vesa as autoconfigured driver 3

..the modesetting driver is unloaded, so either graphics-KERNEL was not loaded or modesetting doesn't support your hardware.

I'll look at compiling xf86-video-geode

[    62.195] (==) Matched fbdev as autoconfigured driver 2
[    62.195] (==) Matched vesa as autoconfigured driver 3

xf86-video-geode posted - hopefully loading that will help
