dosbox 0.61 was installed without SDL. When I start it I get:
dosbox-0.61]$ dosbox
CONFIG: Using default settings. Create a configfile to change
them
Error: Could not open /dev/nvidiactl because the permissions
are too resticitive. Please see the FREQUENTLY ASKED
QUESTIONS
section of /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/README for steps
to correct.

I don't have "/dev/nvidiactl" nor
" /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/README" on my system.
I'm running Mandrake Linux 10.0 with an nvidia card.

    Did you compile dosbox yourself ?
    The bug you are describing doesn't relate to dosbox.
    more to your system running opengl games.

    I would check the mandrake site to find out how they
    configure opengl
