-=====
-
-A client library to multiplex connections from and to iOS devices by connecting
-to a socket provided by a usbmuxd daemon.
-
-Requirements
-============
-
-Development Packages of:
-	libplist
-
-Software:
-	usbmuxd (Windows and Mac OS X can use the one provided by iTunes)
-	make
-	autoheader
-	automake
-	autoconf
-	libtool
-	pkg-config
-	gcc
-
-Optional:

-
-Installation
-============
-
-To compile run:
-	./autogen.sh

-
-If dependent packages cannot be found when running autogen.sh (or configure)
-make sure that pkg-config is installed and set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment
-variable if required. It can be passed directly like this:
-
-PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig ./autogen.sh

+
+## About
+
+A client library to multiplex connections from and to iOS devices by connecting
+to a socket provided by a usbmuxd daemon.
+
+## Requirements
+
+Development Packages of:
+* libplist
+
+Software:
+* usbmuxd (Windows and Mac OS X can use the one provided by iTunes)
+* make
+* autoheader
+* automake
+* autoconf
+* libtool
+* pkg-config
+* gcc or clang
+
+Optional:
+* inotify (Linux only)
+
+## Installation
+
+To compile run:
+```bash
+./autogen.sh
+make
+sudo make install
+```
+
+If dependent packages cannot be found when running autogen.sh (or configure)
+make sure that `pkg-config` is installed and set the `PKG_CONFIG_PATH` environment
+variable if required. It can be passed directly like this:
+
+```bash
+PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig ./autogen.sh
+```
+
+If you require a custom prefix or other option being passed to `./configure`
+you can pass them directly to `./autogen.sh` like this:
+```bash
+./autogen.sh --prefix=/opt/local --without-cython
+make
+sudo make install
+```
