+This is the userspace part of the VirtualBox Guest Additions.
+Together with virtualbox-kernel-addons they enable shared folders,
+shared clipboard, etcetera, inside your Slackware guest machines.
+
+You'll probably want to add the following lines to your rc.local:
+ # Start vboxadd
+ if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.vboxadd ]; then
+ /etc/rc.d/rc.vboxadd start
+ fi
+
+ # Start vboxvfs
+ if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.vboxvfs ]; then
+ /etc/rc.d/rc.vboxvfs start
+ fi
+
+ # Start vboxadd-timesync
+ if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.vboxadd-timesync ]; then
+ /etc/rc.d/rc.vboxadd-timesync start
+ fi
+
+This will load the support kernel module and will setup the network
+configuration for VirtualBox. You should add similar "stop" lines to
+your rc.local_shutdown.
+
+You might want to add
+ /usr/bin/VBoxClient
+to your xinitrc file if you use a desktop environment that doesn't
+respect /etc/xdg/autostart or /usr/share/autostart
+
+This package is intended to be used on GUEST / VIRTUAL MACHINES running
+Slackware, NOT the host system.
