[Chimera-users] starting chimera

(FYI, I have 64-bit Fedora 10 with the ATI graphics driver on my desktop 
and both the 32-bit and the 64-bit daily builds work.)

It's extremely weird that chimera 1.3 works in Fedora 10 and the daily 
builds do not.  Our experience has been just the opposite.  Please send me 
the output of the glxinfo command and I'll see if I can figure out what's 
going wrong.
