Regarding fbturbo on for Banana pi Pro

8 2890
I used to use the following /etc/X11/xorg.conf on banana pi for screen rotation.

Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Allwinner A10/A13 FBDEV"
        Driver          "fbturbo"
        Option          "fbdev" "/dev/fb0"
        Option          "SwapbuffersWait" "true"
        Option          "rotate" "CW"
        Option          "HWCursor" "false"

And now I put the same xorg.conf on /etc/X11 for banana pi Pro built with bananian Linux (version: 15.04, released 2015-04-08).
Now I have the errors:

[    88.243] (II) LoadModule: "fbturbo"
[    88.248] (WW) Warning, couldn't open module fbturbo
[    88.248] (II) UnloadModule: "fbturbo"

[    88.248]
[    88.249] Server terminated with error (1). Closing log file.

Just wondering what module should I load for Banana Pi Pro with bananian Linux.

P.S.  I need to keep the video hardware acceleration working as well.


Can someone shed me some light on this?

Thanks!  Here has a step on how to install fbturbo.

Thank You for your instruction.
I am now able to use fbturbo on xorg.conf and rotate the screen.
One weird thing is that the video is not rotated when I use gnome-mplayer to play the video.

Please see below:

Any clues?

Please see below for video not rotating:


afaik video rotating is not supported.

Why is youtube video OK?  Is it because of video is not using the hardware accelerated engine.
Can you let me know what other forums I should address the video rotation problem?

Note: I even try to open a video with iceweasel (Video plugin: gecko-mediaplayer + Gnome-mplayer)

Is it because of video is not using the hardware accelerated engine.

Yes. Try to get more info from here: and on official IRC channel.
