I'm trying to have my server render out an animation, but it fails. When I run blender -E help, I get "unable to open a display" (it's a headless server).

Can Blender render without a GPU?


Use the --background (-b) flag to prevent blender from attempting to open a GUI.
blender -b -E help should work as expected.
