Can stretch/desktop operate headless

Sat Aug 26, 2017 6:53 am

If I install stretch with desktop to a pi zero w and do all the initial set up can I then run it headless for all subsequent boots? I'm wanting to make an airplay receiver and have stretch lite but am now struggling to get to reconnect to wifi (had it running well initially and responding in SSH) and can see difficulties later on - I think it would be easier for me to set it all up via desktop but then I'll want it headless and to be able to boot itself without input every time...

Yes, you can still run headless.

Note that if you activate the VNC server you can also then run the desktop remotely as well.
