My kids need Silverlight to access their school agenda, following tutorials etc.

Your School Board needs some schooling.  I guess it has lots of money to waste.

Changed my nick from webmouse to SmartDuck.
Back to Vector Linux as my main distro.  7.1 works great for me. Most distros are to bloated or not stable.
Wrote manuals/translations and did some other things for Vector Linux in the past, 4.0, 4.3, 5.9 versions.

WhoamI: Marcel, 43 years young :), married this year, I have 3 kids and my lovely wife has 2.
We live in Waalwijk, a small city in the south of the netherlands with 2 cats, turtles, fish and chickens.
I work as a system developer/scrum master for a international parcel company.

This would be kool but it involves wine and that may be a problem for our 64 bit users... I wish we could go multilib by default there

A bit late answer for the topic starter...
HTML5 doesn't work for websites that use Silverlight. 
My kids need Silverlight to access their school agenda, following tutorials etc.
I found this solution
Takes some effort to setup but works fine.

Roared is correct... This package is built at the same time as the kernel so the package you install must correspond to the kernel version you have running...

We did identify an issue with the package naming scheme for this type of packages which is why I triggered a new kernel build along with its related packages but the contents of the packages have not changed at all.

Small howto Lighttpd with PHP, SQLite for other fellow Vectorians that run into trouble:

Install Lighttpd and PHP
First install Lighttpd and PHP 5.6.9 via Gslapt, it's the simple part, just go to menu -> system -> Gslapt Package Manager and search for lighttpd and php.

Running Lighttpd
Lighttpd is not running after install. Open a terminal and log in as root. With /etc/rc.d/rc.lighttpd start -> the web server is started, with /etc/rc.d/rc.lighttpd stop -> it stops and /etc/rc.d/rc.lighttpd restart -> restarts the web server.

Enable PHP
Edit the lighttpd.config file. For example with Geany:

# geany /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf

Remove the # at the beginning of line 24 to enable fastcgi.
Replace the fastcgi section beginning at line 209 with:

fastcgi.server = ( ".php" => ((
        "bin-path" => "/usr/bin/php-cgi",
        "socket" => "/tmp/php.socket"

Save the configuration.

Enable the php ini file:
# cp /etc/httpd/php.ini-development /etc/httpd/php.ini or # cp /etc/httpd/php.ini-production /etc/httpd/php.ini for a live web server.

The PHP package is configured for Apache. So you will have to correct the group for PHP to save sessions.
# chown root:lighttpd /var/lib/php

Restart Lighttpd:
# /etc/rc.d/rc.lighttpd restart

And place your PHP files in /var/www/htdocs-lighttpd and correct the user and group on these files:
# chown lighttpd:lighttpd <filename>

Open a browser and goto http://localhost to browse your PHP web site.
You can check if all PHP options are functioning, create a file index.php in /var/www/htdocs-lighttpd with this code:

   echo phpinfo();

and goto http://localhost.
