Did this just start happening? and its only when you do those two commands nothing else?

If the screen just flickers, I know I have that happen to me at random times when I'm at the console too. I've never known it to hurt anything, but I'm new to Linux as well.

Its not a hurdle in any way, just that the VGA driver probes for better graphic support on the hardware. Is there a way to stop the VGA from probing for that?
