Adequate user experience and the lack of a good solution for virtual machine remote access were what
sparked the Spice project. To ensure that Spice is a success, the following project goals were set:
a). To deliver a high-quality user experience, similar to local machine, in LAN environments
b). To maintain low CPU consumption in order to have high VM density on the host
c). To provide high-quality video streaming and 3D

I built Spice server on a 32-bit machine and it failed. What can I do?
