weird issue with radeon video driver
Arch Linux on Athlon 2400XP---Radeon 7500 graphics
After a full system update, I had some major graphics issues. I found that changing to the generic vesa driver cleared it.
With the package manager, I found that the installed package was "xf86-video-ati-git". This looked strange so I searched what was available (in the Arch repos) and found "xf86-video-ati 6.12.192-1", which I promptly installed. Now everything is working fine.
What was the Arch update process doing to me???
