I've done that, but can't extract the tgz file. I've copied the file
(note that the file I've downloaded has capital letters (under
MS-DOS), but in MuLinux it appears with small letters!!! So I renamed
svga.tgz to SVGA.tgz under linux...) in the root directory /

In the readme of SVGA.tgz it says:

    cd /
    cat SVGA.tgz | bzip2 -dc SVGA.tgz | tar -xvf-

I've done that, but got an error message:

    -xvf- not found
    bzip2: Input filename SVGA.tgz doesn't end in '.bz2', skipping

What am I doing wrong here?

I've also tried to extract the file with the command

    gzip -x SVGA.tgz

Then the file was changed to the name SVGA.tar. I couldn't got any

I hope I'll come to that step soon :-)

I'm sorry. I don't understand what you mean here. Which step exactly
do you mean is *not* out of date. And when it's *not* out-of-date why
do you mention it? What would have been changed?

Thanks for all your help!
