Weird thing happening with graphics after update


Yesterday I had a huge amount of updates, including things like the Kernel, Mesa, and video driver (xf86-video-ati).

Now my monitors are all messed up!

When I booted, I found that the characters are much smaller and higher resolution in command line mode.

Then when I started X, my two monitors are swapped! The taskbar is on the right, secondary monitor, and I move the mouse off the right edge of the right monitor into the left edge of the left monitor.

I corrected the swapped monitor problem just by swapping the monitors' DVI connections.

But I still wonder why the text in command-line mode got smaller...
