This kind of error is usually due to a buggy graphics driver.  Please file 
a bug using chimera's Help / Report a Bug dialog so the chimera bug 
database will have a record of the buggy graphic driver version, then 
update your graphics driver (do not use yum, use the vendor's graphics 
driver installer), and then follow up the bug with whether or not that 
fixed it (presumably it will).

 	Good luck,
