Can't run ue 4.19 on a headless ubuntu 16.04
I'm trying to run ue 4.19 on a headless ubuntu 16.04 without success. My card: 1080ti, nvidia driver: 390.67 I've installed 'xserver-xorg-video-dummy' and my xorg looks like this:
It works fine, I can connect to the ubuntu via vnc / teamviewer. When I am trying to run ue4 from console I got following erorr:
But "xrandr" works from console. I also found following lines in xorg log:
You don't need X11 server to run headless, the editor should create the context via EGL (provided that you have NVidia binary drivers) and will render into an offscreen framebuffer. This is of course if you want rendering at all - if you don't need rendering you can pass -nullrhi (UE servers have -nullrhi implied and never require graphics).
I recommend uninstalling the dummy X server because it actually gets into the way - once the engine realizes it has some X server it starts to require particular extensions that the dummy one doesn't seem to support.
