Cool Very slow OpenGL

For some reason, any OpenGL programs I run aren't able to use hardware acceleration, only software emulation which is SLOW.

I have a Dual-Boot between XP and Slackware based Topologi Linux. OpenGL runs great on XP. I'm wondering do I need new drivers?

I tried installing the NVIDIA drivers but it failed because I needed the source to my kernel. Which I don't know where to get.
