OpenCL console mode -> screen flickering

I have some issues running an OpenCL program from the Linux console. I already learned from [1] that the program needs to have root privileges and the X window system needs to be stopped.

But immediately after the program starts, the screen begins to flicker. After the program has finished the flickering still continues. I assume this is not caused by my program because I got the same effect when running samples from the APP SDK or just 'clinfo'.


Does anyone know how to fix this?
