I can be wrong (I don't use bumblebee), but it seems to me that for some reason you have installed the xf86-video-qxl package (the qxl driver for qemu virtual machine displays using spice) and you still have a file /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/05-qxl.conf (or something similar) that looks for the qxl driver laying around in your filesystem.

Couple of things:
1. -current mesa doesn't include glxspheres... hasn't for a while (maybe another update for your box?)
2. I keep a repo updated for -current herehttps://github.com/WhiteWolf1776/Bumblebee-SlackBuilds . The How-To is more to support released versions than -current I believe.

Give that repo a quick look and see if there is any diff with your install.

The most common mistakes for this are forgetting to install the xf86-video-nouveau-blacklist-noarch-1 from /extra and forgetting (or not knowing) to blacklist xf86-video-nouveau in /etc/slackpkg/blacklist (so it just gets re-installed next time you slackpkg upgrade-all)

explaining:
i did not install qxl, it is even not compiling in current.
i blacklisted nouveau in modprobe.d
i have both primus and virtualgl installed, so glxspheres is also installed.
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ is empty

Since you are running bumblebee, the config files for your secondary GPU are in /etc/bumblebee. You shouldn't need to modify them, but if you are hunting down your xorg conf files, they are there.

thanks nor help. removing all the bbsb pkgs, purging /etc/bumblebee and recompiling bbsb again solved the problem.

cool :)

It seems there is something with order.. or sometimes forgetting that COMPAT32=yes on one package.. is the issue 90%.

Mark as solved please.
