C. Boot options
The framebuffer console has several, largely unknown, boot
that can change its behavior.
This option changes the orientation angle of the console
value 'n' accepts the following:
0 - normal orientation (0 degree)
1 - clockwise orientation (90 degrees)
2 - upside down orientation (180 degrees)
3 - counterclockwise orientation (270 degrees)
The angle can be changed anytime afterwards by 'echoing' the
numbers to any one of the 2 attributes found in
rotate - rotate the display of the active console
rotate_all - rotate the display of all consoles
Console rotation will only become available if Console Rotation
Support is compiled in your kernel.
NOTE: This is purely console rotation. Any other applications
use the framebuffer will remain at their 'normal'orientation.
Actually, the underlying fb driver is totally ignorant of

Also, this *might* help
