Boot OpenOS without GPU/Screen?

Question

I wrote a program that basically needs to read/write a file and trigger one of 9 note blocks, this file is managed externally.

Because of the 9 note blocks I am running out of component space. The perfect solution to this would be to boot my program without a screen (it doesn't need a screen to function).

I tried booting OpenOS without a GPU/Screen, but it seems to freeze at some point and OpenOS will not run any programs I've configured to autorun.

 

Preferably I'd like a minimal setup, which only loads what I need and runs without a GPU/Screen, I have the following requires in my program:

require("serialization")
require("component")
require("filesystem")
require("shell")
require("event")

Which I guess is basically the complete OpenOS suite...

 

So simple question: how to boot without a GPU/Screen and run my program?

I've noticed the autorun system is kind of finicky, another way (that may work better) is to use the RC system and make a daemon / service program. There's a few examples on the forums here.

Seems to work, but documentation is terrible... Spent 30 minutes figuring out what to place in rc.cfg :P

Thank you :)
