Chris, Ozab, orbea, reread my original post, particularly 'I don't even 
have any
Nvidia hardware,' and I never had on this PC. None what you said has 
anything to do with it.  You all missed that there's an earlier line, 
'libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to authenticate,' and other error lines.  
VLC may now be built to use more parts of display hardware, and Nvidia 
is just something it checks for but is n/a. I'm using an AMD Radeon RX 
Vega 64 with kernel 4.18.11, but I don't think the AMD 3D drivers are 
ready for Slackware 14.2... and unfortunately VLC doesn't give me an 
option to not use such parts that make it crash.
