+About:
+ slapt-update-service is a DBus service which notifies about package updates
+ available via slapt-get and gslapt. slapt-update-service places an icon in
+ the user's notification area when updates are available. Clicking the icon
+ starts upgrading with gslapt.
+
+Requirements:
+ To build from source, you must have these packages installed:
+ autoconf automake libtool m4 gettext gettext-tools pkgconfig
+ glibc atk glib2 gtk+2 pango x11 zlib dbus-glib openssl curl
+ slapt-get
+
+Building:
+ Run ./configure. you must specify the use of one of the following graphical
+ su/sudo applications: gnomesu, gksu, kdesu. For example:
+ ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --with-gnomesu=yes
+ Now run make.
+
+Installing:
+ You can either run 'make install' or 'make pkg'. The 'pkg' make target
+ will create a Slackware package in ./pkg.
+
+Caveats:
+ Right now the graphical su/sudo application gnomesu is hardcoded within
+ slapt-update-service based on the build time configure option.
