Usually, also from an installed muLinux, you can update addons with:

                # setup -f addon-name

The major problem is: 6.4 has no support for newer addons, like
TEX or TCL, and other misconfiguration may arise from BASE floppy.

Another way is to upack the addons in your hardisk:

        # cat XYZ.tgz | bzip2 -ds | (cd / ; tar -xvf -)

and to run by hand the "prolog" file, if any, usually located in
the bin/ directory, starting from mounting point.


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
