Where do I find these?

I just installed slack13-64 on a new machine and this is my first
time fiddling around with a pure 64bit OS. I am compiling some
essential packages for personal use, no probs so far (util-linux-ng
with loop-AES support, aespipe, dietlibc, ...).

But really, VirtualBox is a must for me these days.

Doesn't sound too promising... I'll gladly chime in. Who knows, maybe
they just need a little push to come to their senses.
