12.1 > System > virtualbox-ose-addons (2.0.6)

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

# Start vboxvfs
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.vboxvfs ]; then
/etc/rc.d/rc.vboxvfs start

# Start vboxadd-timesync
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.vboxadd-timesync ]; then
/etc/rc.d/rc.vboxadd-timesync start

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
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.
