The header files from the proprietary Nvidia driver are deprecated. Use
the OpenGL headers from Mesa. If these headers are missing, then:
1. nvidia-switch --remove
2. remove nvidia packages
3. reinstall Mesa from the Slackware CD/DVD.
4. install nvidia packages
If you upgraded from earlier SBo nvidia iterations, the headers may have
gotten stomped on as I waffled between the older nvidia gl*.h and the
newer Mesa versions. Nvidia has had a post this. You can search LQ and
this list for details.
Happy Winter Solstice,
