Using OpenCL without starting X-Windows (on Linux)

Is it possible to use OpenCL on AMD GPUs without the OS's GUI?


when I tried to boot my Linux system without starting KDE, my GPU does not seem to be available as an OpenCL device. With KDE started, everything works fine.

Is there a possibility to change this? I guess it would make a lot of sense, as a lot of OpenCL applications do not necessarily need a graphical interface.

Thanks, Jan
