Force load fglrx / emulate displayview story

http://askubuntu.com – I want a headless machine (no display attached) for OpenCL calculation but fglrx drivers won't fully load until I attach a display to the VGA card. The VGA (R9 290) doesn't have DAC (there are DP, HDMI, DVI-D, but no DVI-I or D-sub), so the "dummy plug" won't work. Any ideas about how to forcefully load the drivers (so that they can do both OpenCL calculations and be tuned via ADL), disable this (HowTos)

Rendering Windows 7 at 1366x768 but outputting 1024x768 resolution to display (using AMD HD7770)?view story

https://www.kubuntuforums.net – Previously, I had 2 Kubuntu computers I built myself and 2 laptops that came with Windows 7 and 8. I had the mentality that "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" for quite a long while and used Windows 7 on this laptop and it did work perfectly. However, upon hearing that Windows has possibly created custom made backdoors for the NSA, I had a change of heart. (HowTos)
