    Re: Boot 9.10 without monitor connected

    I'm using Debian Squeeze (6.0.6). I have a basic install with a few applications and wanted to boot without a monitor. I've tried all kinds of tutorials mentioning modification to /etc/inittab and executing "startx" in either /home/<user>/.profile or some other file...nothing worked until now. My default /etc/default/grub file had this line:
    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet"
    I changed it to:
    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="i915.modeset=0"
    Then I ran this command as the root user:
    Code:
    update-grub
    If you're an Ubuntu user you should run:
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    I installed Teamviewer and set it to auto run. Now I can boot the PC without a monitor, keyboard, or mouse and connect to it through Teamviewer! AWESOME!!!

    I found out i915 only works for Intel cards. I have a computer with an old radeon card. I had to use this line instead:

    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="radeon.modeset=0"
    I'm guessing this should work for Nvidia cards but not sure:

    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="nouveau.modeset=0"
