Yes, I'm pretty sure the slide switch is attached to a GPIO.
Anyway, we are currently trying to move our codebase into 2.6.30, so I'd
say the rotation switch is very low priority :P

Yes, we don't support it in linwizard yet. I'm thinking in gpio-buttons
and a userspace script??
What didn't work was doing a
echo 1 > /sys/class/fbcon/something/rotate
The console could rotate but fbcondecor seemed to be unaware of new
framebuffer size and rendered the decorations all fscked up.
