This is my first time working on a native (tty?) rather than virtual CLI (vty?). The machine is connected to a portrait monitor and I’m unable to work out how to rotate the CLI output to match.
Reading around on other Linux distros suggest the answer lies in setting fbcon’s rotate_all value to 3. I tried to do this via sysctl -w, but was unable to find the value. I also tried a bit of a brute force approach using:
sudo bash -c 'echo 3 > /sys/class/graphics/fbcon/rotate_all’
This appears to work without error, but has no effect.
I’m guessing this fbcon variable needs to be assigned in a kernel boot parameter, but I’m unsure how to achieve that in Clear, can anyone help?
