[Chimera-users] side view crash

Your Chimera crash is almost certainly caused by a graphics driver bug.  Unfortunately these are very common.  Chimera 1.9 uses modern OpenGL 3d graphics while Chimera 1.6 used an older version of OpenGL.  You’ll need to install a newer graphics driver to fix this crashing issue.  You can use Chimera menu entry Help / Report a Bug… which will tell us your current graphics driver version and we may be able to advise on a driver that will work.
