   SPICE: Simple Protocol for Independent Computing Environments
   =============================================================

SPICE is a remote display system built for virtual environments which
allows you to view a computing 'desktop' environment not only on the
machine where it is running, but from anywhere on the Internet and
from a wide variety of machine architectures.

Installation
------------

The SPICE package uses GNU autotools, so the build install process
follows the standard process documented in the INSTALL file. As a
quick start you can do

  ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
        --localstatedir=/var --libdir=/usr/lib
  make
  sudo make install

Or to install into a private user specific location

  ./configure --prefix=$HOME/spice
  make
  make install

The following mandatory dependencies are required in order to
build SPICE

    Spice protocol >= 0.12.13
    Pixman         >= 0.17.7
    OpenSSL
    libjpeg
    zlib

The following optional dependencies increase the available
functionality

    Cyrus-SASL
    libcacard      >= 0.1.2             (Smartcard support)
    Opus           >= 1.0.0             (Opus audio encoding support)
    LZ4                                 (LZ4 compression support)
    GStreamer      >= 1.0.0

Communication
-------------

To communicate with the development team, or to post patches
there is a technical mailing list:

   http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/spice-devel

There is also a mailing list for new release announcements:

   http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/spice-announce/

To view known bugs, or report new bugs, in SPICE visit

   https://bugs.freedesktop.org/describecomponents.cgi?product=Spice

Bugs found when using an OS distribution's binary packages should
be reported to the OS vendors' own bug tracker first.

The latest SPICE code can be found in GIT at:

   https://cgit.freedesktop.org/spice/
