The kernel is not standing still, now up to 4.4.13

Rather than posting direct links to moving targets, this is where the packages will be found:

I'm wondering how well the Equinox Desktop Environment (EDE) works on Vector Linux.  It uses FLTK instead of GTK or QT, so I'm thinking it might be a better choice than either LXDE or LXQT for old laptops with very slow hard drives and less than 1 gig of RAM.
It's not listed by gslapt for VL 7.1, but the developer's web site suggests several installation methods for Slackware:
I know VL 7.1 is NOT completely equivalent to Slackware 14.1, so I'm a little worried that following the Slackware instructions might cause problems.  Has anyone tried this and if so, how does EDE compare to the other "lightweight" desktop environments?  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I'm having trouble finding version 1.3.7 of "xf86-video-trident" (the UPDATED Trident video driver for the Xorg X server).  The older version (1.3.6) as supplied with VL Light 7.1 won't load due to a bug which produces the following error message in /var/log/Xorg.0.log

 (EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/ /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/ undefined symbol: TRIDENT_Sync

Can anyone direct me to a VL-compatible repo that contains the NEW Trident driver?  I've tried ALL of the predefined repos at, plus this custom one:
Gslapt only shows me version 1.3.6, and I as far as I know, anyone with a Trident video controller needs version 1.3.7.
