is it possible running X on a linux server without keyboard, mouse or monitor?

hi,
My linux server, a Debian, has no keyboard, mouse or monitor.
I always use it by ssh console.
But now a GUI application needs to run on this server, as a deamon.

I did these:
#apt-get install xwindow-system-core
#apt-get install xdm

I dont know how to config the xorg.conf to make X run on this server .
Neither i am sure whether xdm needs a running X.

anyone help me?
Thanks in advance!
 
 
 

1. running windows 2000/2000 server with no monitor/keyboard/mouse

2. Windowps: except for total mouse and keyboard freezes, it's still Linux thats great

Micoshaft fraudster and asstroturfer DFS wrote on behalf of Half Wits from
Micoshaft Corporation:



I find most OS freezing problems in the office are to do with WINDUMMY OSen.
So too does most of the public because of badly written virus prone
WINDUMMY OSen.

Never mind Doofus, you are still doing a great job of a bad job
of working as an asstrotufer for Micoshaft Corporation.

I'm sure you are looking out the window and wondering when you will
ever become free of the Micoshaft burden and do something worthwhile
like deleting ALL your WINDUMMY PCs and installing Linux.

Shoveling net abuse into COLA must really hurt your pride
as you feel a genuine Linux advocate after learning some Linux,
but your need to feed your money spending habbits force you to work for
Micoshaft posting help forum messages after help forum message in net abuse
tactics; and your posts become as worthless as commercial advertising rants.
