Spice Video Dummy Driver
If you wish to create a 'headless' connection to a server - create an
X session without using the main system display - there is a straight
forward process that is now included with x11spice.
That is, x11spice now optionally builds an Xorg driver that is based
on the dummy driver and the modesetting driver. This gives a virtual
frame buffer driver which should include modern Mesa capabilities.
To use this driver, simply add:
to the configure line. This will build the Xorg driver. A simplistic
example is included showing the general concepts of using this driver.
Refer to the spice-video-dummy/ bash script for more
