Running X11 in Debian without a monitor?


In debian stable, the xorg log tells me :0 no screen found when I am launching it headless.

I would like to tell debian not to check if there is really a monitor. If there is no monitor, please run anyhow x11 with flubox.

I launch x11 from gdm autologin.

Looking forward for some help

I think you need to look into the xserver-xorg-video-dummy package.
