I have Win2008 on a Debian using kvm and it works beautifully with

kvm -m 2048 -vnc :0 win2008.img

Unfortunately it does not work when I remove the -vnc :0 parameter:

kvm -m 2048 win2008.img

(*) DirectFB/Core: Single Application Core. (2008-08-17 14:50)
(*) Direct/Memcpy: Using libc memcpy()
(!) Direct/Util: opening '/dev/fb0' and '/dev/fb/0' failed
    --> No such file or directory
(!) DirectFB/FBDev: Error opening framebuffer device!
(!) DirectFB/FBDev: Use 'fbdev' option or set FRAMEBUFFER environment variable.
(!) DirectFB/Core: Could not initialize 'system' core!
    --> Initialization error!
Could not initialize SDL - exiting

Is there a way to run this without running a vnc server?
