Recently I used Chimera for a internship/volunteer work with my older
brother, and it did not start up due to some seemingly graphics drivers
problems. I'm running Ubuntu 15.04 on a AMD radion 5450M on this machine
and NVidea gtx 760 on another.  Both would not start up due to having
libGL error: unable to load driver: nouveau_dri.so etc etc,
as so documented here:

(Error from the NvIdia machine) and would not load r600. However both had
the same fix, that seemigly works by removing the file
/Chimera64-1.10.2/lib/libstdc++.so.6, I renamed it to libstdc++.so.6.bak in
case I might need it, but it works on both machines now. It seems as some
older libs are colliding with mesa drivers, and casung them to break, and
removing this fixes the problem. Its been documented before with other
programs here, where the fix is simular.
I also found that in the chimera mail I found, it was recommend to update
some drivers, or Nvidia drivers, however, nvidia drivers for linux tend to
break the system a lot or cause other problems.

Hope this helps!,
