    Hi,

    I am using Cinnamon with CentOS 7. If I use a monitor on this machine then I don’t get messages for software rendering mode, but when I remove monitor and run as headless server then cinnamon runs in software rendering mode and displays message on each login.

    Please guide me to resolve this issue.

    Let me know if you need any other info.

     

    Regards,

    Rupesh

    I think your X server fails to start if no monitor is attached to the graphical output. You can try to configure Xorg tweaking /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Configuration depends on video card vendor, but you can easily find something useful for NVIDIA, for example:
