Yes,  I did that on one machine. Install the kernel sources first, then use the "all distributions" version from Oracle.

- go here: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/kernels/
- download the "kernel-src-xxxxxxxxxx.txz" file that matches your kernel (uname -a in a terminal)
- as root, command "installpkg /path/to/the/file/kernel-src-xxxxxxxxxxx.txz"
