    Flickering in Dark Areas

    Hello everybody,

    I've been using Arch Linux and its derivatives for a long time now. But since it happened in the past from time to time that an update did not go through cleanly, and I had to fix the system rather cumbersome, I took a look around for alternatives. Since I got so used to Arch Linux and the current package versions and the Rolling Release, the choice here is not very big.
    However, I like Fedora's approach of being close to a rolling release and relying on up-to-date software including a near-current kernel, while being a stable system for productive work.

    Now I installed Fedora 26 a few weeks ago. The installation worked without problems. The system ran flawlessly.

    What I noticed, however, is that in dark areas of the screen, a slight flicker can be seen. I especially noticed this with the program Darktable, a RAW converter for Linux. But even after opening the terminal application, you can recognize this slight flicker. In bright areas, it probably just does not notice.

    I have an Intel board, with Intel i7 processor (Ivy Bridge), a NVIDIA GTX 650 graphics card and have otherwise changed nothing else s.System. So I noticed this right after the basic installation.

    Yesterday I tried Fedora 27, but there is the same behavior.

    If I run Fedora under VirtualBox, everything is fine. So seems some driver problem? to be.

    Under Arch Linux, Antergos or Manjaro I have never noticed this, neither with the Nouveau driver nor with the Nvidia driver. Although I wanted to use only the Nouveau driver at Fedora and have not tried there with the Nvidia driver.

    Can someone help me here?

    Thanks and regards
