Grabbing EGL with no display attached

Hi not sure if this question has been asked before but i could not find a thread addressing this issue.

I have an application that grabs an image through egl for processing with cuda kernels.

Isit possible to grab the egl buffer without a display attached?


In each release, SQA test cases are verified with X11 being installed and it might fail if it is removed… Here is a similar case

You may try your case and check if it can be run well.

Don’t forget that you can install a virtual X server. Any end application won’t care if the monitor is just a virtual buffer pretending to be a monitor, or if it is a real monitor. Basically the VNC or similar applications. I don’t have a recommendation of a particular virtual X server.
