I use the nvidia driver with libsdl often and don't have any problems. Try 
running the command from a console and see if you can see what the error is. 
I have had to install different libs at times to get things working. Is that 
a 32 bit app you are trying to run? If so you'll need the ia32-libs package 
as well as nvidia-glx-ia32 to get that going. ~/.xsession-errors may also 
provide a clue.
