System: AMD Phenom(tm) II X6, 2 x AMD Radeon HD 6990, Ubuntu 11.10, Catalyst 11.9, AMD-APP-SDK-v2.5

My problem is that the GPU's are only accessible after I log in through gdm on the machine. After setting it up I (and others) will only have access to the machine through ssh. How do I get around this?

The Machine will only be used for OpenCL programming, and running these programs.
