Tiny Fonts In X
I recently tried to install a second graphics card (an S3 verge) and linux detected the graphics card an installed drivers as expected. However when i then booted mandrake and started xWindows (StartX from command line) all the fonts were unreadabley small. The second graphics card was just a spur of the moment experiment and I have since removed it.
By guessing my way around menu's i managed to find a font box for something, turned that particular font right up and it was just about big enough to be readable. Is their away i can get my fonts back to normal size from command line?
I have tried reinstalling mandrake but apparently it kept my existing X configuration file.

Goto the commandline and run the commandline X-server configuration program, the commands are xf86cfg and xf86config, the latter just generates a new config file while the first runs a semi-text windowed configuration program to create a new one. Try both and see what you get.
EDIT: Boot into text-only mode, or else these tools will complain that X is still running. So don't use virtual consoles.Nothing is worse than ten penguins fighting over which is better, vi or emacs.
