maybe xorg server?: gnome is not starting without a screen connected?

Hi all,

I am a blind person from austria.
I am using the computer often without a screen.
I figured out on many distros there are issues with the desktop without 
a screen.
Seems the desktop isn't coming up when no screen is connected?
I read in the arch wiki that this is caused by the screen auto config 
function of the server.
can that be worked around?
I wanted to install a system on a machine but the live dvd seems not to 
come up because of this.
Is there something i can specify at boot? for example some parameters i 
can enter at the boot menu?


For people using no screen this is pretty frustrating.

greetings and thanks for helping,
Simon
