Hyperpixel 4 on RPi 400 -- rotate console?

Hi all

I’ve plugged the Hyperpixel 4 into a rPi 400, and the console is in portrait mode.
Is there an easy way to display the console in landscape mode?

I can boot X and use the hyperpixel-rotate command to rotate the X display – however, I’m not wanting to run X – I just want a simple console.

Cheers all

Found this link really helpful:

These are the changes to config.txt that worked for me:

# Enable DRM VC4 V3D driver on top of the dispmanx display stack
# dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d


dpi_timings=480 0 10 16 59 800 0 15 113 15 0 0 0 60 0 32000000 6

Disabling vc4-fkms-v3d will probably mean that the HDMI ports will no longer work – I’ve yet to check, but as I mentioned originally I’m just wanting the console on the Hyperpixel 4.

Rather nicely, ‘startx’ brings up X properly on the Hyperpixel 4, and touch is working just fine. (I did earlier run hyperpixel-rotate when I first started on this, so that may be a necessary step for this to work.)
