[Chimera-users] GLXBadRenderRequest

I am receiving the following error when I try and open a structure running chimera with Mesa 7.0 on Debian 5.

X Error of failed request:  GLXBadRenderRequest
  Major opcode of failed request:  148 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  1 (X_GLXRender)
  Serial number of failed request:  5334
  Current serial number in output stream:  5336

I am assuming that this is related to running an older version of the Mesa driver, but I do not have root on the system and the administrators are hesitant of upgrading the Mesa package in /usr/lib to anything beyond the stable release.   The servers do not have access to any hardware based video so doing an updated hardware based driver install won't help either.   I am limited to what I can do and only have access to my home directory.  Would it be possible for me to compile a newer version of the Mesa driver in my home directory and then compile chimera to use that version of the driver instead of the default in /usr/lib?
