Thanks you everyone for you responses. Two overwhelming choices are clear.

X Virtual Frame Buffer (Included in Sol9)



Original Question
I have a DBA who is trying to run an X program from the 
command line.  The GUI side of it is not used. Seriously, 
Oracle came out with this X program that will run from the 
command line but it has to have an X display for it to run.  
The end goal would be to run it from cron for maint of some sort.

Is there a way to point the DISPLAY variable at a null device 
so this thing can run.  I know this sounds weird.

  The box says: Win98, WinNT or BETTER. That's why I installed Linux.
