Hm.. looks like they have advanced to 18.1.0 between your post and now. Stay tuned to see if it is compatible with VL's current tool chain.

smplayer  new version 's been released...
17.12.0.8844

current version 17.7 on vl7.2 is quite buggy, couldn't play  m3u/pls/ format live  stream radio at well, no matter how to set cache.

expect there's fix update smplayer pkg on test repo very soon.

Sorry... I'm confusing the commands.   Just installpkg *.t?z should do it.
And you all packages I listed.  The modules package will provide drivers for your mouse and kbd

vector://home/allan/moe-inx
root:# installpkg -no-upgrade *.txz
installpkg: unrecognized option '-no-upgrade'

but created a kernel directory with 2 subs, boot and install. In 'install' there is a script and in boot there are vmlinuz, config and System.map.
I don't use grub so I copied the files to /boot and remade the symlinks. I boot from my VL7.0 lilo, so copied vmlinuz and System.map to /boot/tamu.
Made symlinks, ran lilo and rebooted. Boot went OK but no keyboard or mouse for login on X.

Thanks for testing @nightflier.

@amo_en.ch try this:

Head over to http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.2/
and look in the x86 or x86_64 subdirs, whichever matches your installed architecture (see uname -m)

Download the kernel4.4, kernel4.4-modules and kernel4.4-stripped-src versions 4.4.108

Open a terminal and cd to the directory holding the .txz packages. ..  Then in that terminal, su to root and install them with the --no-upgrade option, then update the bootloader.

Code: [Select]
installpkg --no-upgrade *.t?z
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

After that reboot, and select the 4.4.108 kernel from your boot menu.
The alx module is built-in, so if it'll work, it should work out of the box.

Let me know if this does it for you.

@amo_en.ch: M0E-lnx is working on a new kernel that should support your hardware. Watch this thread for further instructions.

@M0E-lnx: In a vm, I did a kernel upgrade to the kernel4.4-4.4.108-x86_64 in untested. First look seems fine.

Thanks for all your help but I'm out of my depth with your link. Will try immediately if you tell me what I should do.
