Yes, but disabling RandRRotation prevents rotating the screen 90, 180,
or 270 degrees during server run time. I've seldom had a reason to turn
my 67" TV on its side--usually, I find it easier to lay down on my
couch, instead... ;) (And, in many cases, I lay down on the couch even
when the TV picture is upright, but I guess after a while you get used
to watching TV sideways.)
