[Chimera-users] Display misconfiguration error

This error check on Linux for multiple incompatible OpenGL libraries has 
existed in Chimera in some form since 2004.  It usually occurs when you 
update your system (especially the kernel) without reinstalling the 
NVidia graphics driver.    Since your system is in an inconsistent 
state, I'd recommend updating/reinstalling the NVidia graphics driver, 
and that should remove the slower OpenGL library and make Chimera 
happy.  If not, please file a bug report with Chimera's Help / Report a 
Bug dialog and we will work together to fix it.
