opencl running on gpu without display attached (linux)

with the 2.01 release and the catalyst 10.1 drivers, is it yet possible to run openCL codes on the GPU, without a display?


linux x86_64

fglrx from 10.1 driver package

stream sdk 2.01

no display attached to pcie card

run apps remotely on the GPU


even better:

init pcie card even if not primary devices (ie multiple cards on one motherboard)

none have active X display or console

run openCL apps on chosen GPUs

installation paths for driver and libs that allow for nvidia & ati to coexist on same machine

io-srv access to pcie via kvm (woot!) for accelerated GPU... <-- that's a money maker!



but still good enough...

initialize GPU to only *think* it is connected to display
