SPICE Server
2015/05/07
 
Install Desktop Virtualization "SPICE ( Simple Protocol for Independent Computing Environment )". It's possible to connect to virtual machines from remote client computer.
[1] Edit existing virtual machine's xml-file and start virtual machine with SPICE. This site's example has created virtual machine without graphics, so it's OK to change settings like follows, but if you created virtual machine with graphics, Remove "<graphics>***" and "<video>***" sections in xml file because qxl is used for graphics.
