SDK 2.5 release notes mention headless GPU operation. I have installed SDK 2.6 and Catalyst 11.11 revision 12.1 on Fedora 16 and clinfo shows the cpu if I log into X only.
If the X is running (at login screen),. but I login remotely via ssh only then clinfo only shows CPU devices.

There are also these instructions:
Hope that helps.
