The logo displayed in the upper left corner of my boot screen in archlinux has changed from the arch logo to a tux.

Why could this be? How do I change it?

Why are there two logos besides one another instead of just one?

Two Tuxes indicate that you have a dual-core processor. I'm not sure about the other points though. – Patches Jun 20 '11 at 6:47

The logo displayed in framebuffer mode actually compiled into the kernel. Check this arch-dev-public thread and this bug report.

You can hide the logos entirely by using kernel mode setting instead of framebuffer drivers, or by adding logo.nologo to the kernel command line.
