Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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)
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
