I tried on VL 7.1 because I couldn't find newer source files. My experience of kernels and modules is virtually inexistant but here's what I tried today.

Downloaded kernel4.4-stripped-src-4.4.107-x86-1vl72.txz. Installed VL 7.2 light.

Because I haven't Gslapt

installpkg kernel4.4-stripped-src-4.4.107-x86-1vl72.txz

Got a few errors concerning symlinks in arch presumably because the sources aren't complete. Remade symlinks between /lib/modules and /usr/source

Ran driver-select alx, and make

I think that I have done things correctly but I have no idea where this error message leaves me

My admittedly brief test was done in a vm using the shipping kernel.

Is there a reason you guys are downgrading the kernel for this? Has anyone tried it on the shipped kernel?

Installed kernel-src-3.18.16-x86-1vl71 on clean VL7.1 light as source files for 7.2 are not available.

Kernel source (kernel4.4-src) is available for 7.2, but somehow it ended up in the "Fonts" folder in the repo. ???

However, I tried this build on an up-to-date 7.2 install and got the same result as you. Hopefully another dev will see this and dig into it.

Haven't really thought about it, but one thing to check is whether the lilo.conf used puts the map file on the floppy. It needs to. And it's going to have to be all chain. But then you knew that.

Good day! I have installed VectorLinux 64 (VL64) and used liloconfig script to install LILO into a floppy.
The floppy works fine with VL64, but a huge problem for me is --> this LILO floppy is not standalone!

I wanted it to be standalone, so that - if I remove a hard drive with VL64 - this floppy would give me a command line
to specify the location of Linux kernel to boot, etc... Instead it just shows to me "L 01 01 01" screen and gets stuck there,
most likely because it still uses some files (maybe /etc/lilo.conf ?) from the VL64 partition

Please tell, how to create a truly standalone LILO floppy? Is that even possible?

What kind of make errors are you getting?

Posting them may help us resolve the problem.

Running actually on VL7-light. Would like to upgrade to 7.1 or 7.2 but both installs don't find my nic, a Qualcomm Atheros Communications Device 1091 which uses the alx module. In VL7 this driver was in /lib/modules/3.0.17/updates/drivers/net/ethernet/atheros/alx but has gone missing from 7.1 and 7.2.
I have tried compiling the driver from compat-drivers-2013-03-04-u.tar.bz2 as recommended, but I get make errors. Would be grateful for any hints.

The folks at SparkyLinux's forum would be the authorities on configuring their boot loader, but here is my opinion:

Assuming GRUB, a quick and dirty hack/test is to edit /boot/grub/grub.cfg (from within SparkyLinux).
Find the code block for VL, and the line
linux /boot/linux root=/dev/sdX (where X is the partition that VL is installed to),
and append " 4", so it becomes
linux /boot/linux root=/dev/sdX 4

The above edit is frowned upon by GRUB devs. It will be overwritten by subsequent updates to GRUB.
When you have the syntax right, the proper way is to edit /etc/grub.d/41-custom (or similar), and add the code block for VL to that script.
