Fedora 8 w/ No Monitor


I'm in need of some advice.

I upgraded my server from Fedora Core 6 to Fedora 8. This is just a file/media/http/vnc/ssh server. I administer it purely remotely and do not have (or ever had) a keyboard, monitor, or mouse connected locally, nor do I really have room for any of that.

Problem is that when I boot X is giving me an error that it couldn't properly initialize a video device...and this is halting my other services from launching.

Under Fedora Core 6 this worked without any work-araounds, however this new distribution seems to have some issues with not having a monitor.

A colleague of mine mentioned a VGA adapter that mimics as a monitor that you plug into the VGA port, but I don't want to do that if it's not necesary.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

why not just stop running X? there's no need to run it locally at all...

Thanks for the help gents! I tend to over think sometimes...

Edited the default runlevel in /etc/inittab from 5 to 3.
