You need to have it plugged during boot so OF can detect the display.
Also you may want to try my devel rsync (I'll have that patch in my
"stable" rsync too when I release 2.4.20-ben2). In this version, I
actually ask OF to "open" all displays, not only the main one. This has
the effect of actually initializing it on some cards.
