Hi Joshua,

  Glad to hear that the new graphics driver fixed the Chimera side view crash on your Ubuntu 12.04 system.  Maybe this will help some other Chimera users.

Sometimes some trick like starting the side view before opening models as described in the post you referenced avoids the problem, but usually there is no way to avoid a graphics driver crash other than replace the driver with one that doesn’t have the bug.
