openGL, Nvidia, and Slackware

OK, so I have the new Nvidia Drivers installed correctly, and im using Slackware 9. Im having trouble installing Trackballs (marble madness type game). It says libGLU is missing and it says its commonly installed with openGL. is openGL installed with the Nvidia drivers? Ive been playing lots of 3D games with no problems, its odd. Any ideas on how to get Trackballs to find my openGL.

So does DRI go on top of my Nvidia drivers, or instead of them? A little more explanation would be appreciated.
