I want to thank Manidip Shasmal for using Chimera's Report a Bug dialog 
to submit this as a bug.  With the information in the bug report, I was 
able to see that the NVIDIA graphics driver was not installed.  
Installing that driver will fix his problem.

So a general comment, for interactive graphics, the graphics drivers, 
that come with the Linux server editions, are too old and buggy for 
Chimera.  You would be much better off with a desktop edition of Linux, 
like Ubuntu.
