I downloaded the latest chimera build and installed it successfully without
any error. When i give chimera in command line, i get the following error.
But when i start the chimera 1.3 version, it works without any problem. I am
using the latest build in Fedora 10.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/chimera_new/share/__main__.py", line 65, in <module>
    value = chimeraInit.init(sys.argv)
  File "/usr/local/chimera_new/share/chimeraInit.py", line 374, in init
