I believe Stellarium requires hardware accelerated opengl. If you have an ATi/AMD or nVIDIA video card, you may need to install the proprietary video drivers.

AMD no longer updates the old radeon drivers. Depending on your GPU, you may need to install amdgpu-pro. The problem with doing so is there isn't a distro specific build for VL (or Slackware for that matter), so some creative fiddling may be in order to get it to install properly.
