However, the desktop I used is some old and I can not update and use Chimera right now. The Chimera installed is 1.2 version but cannot be started. The specifics of computer is as follows:

Hi Yinghui,
	The last version of Chimera that should run on OS X 10.4 is version 1.4.1.  You can download that version and try it by going to the Chimera download page and clicking on the "Old releases" link (one of the links right under the "Download Chimera" text near the top of the page).  Scroll quite aways down the table on the old releases page to get to the 1.4.1 version.  The "Notes" section of that table notes what OS versions that version of Chimera works on.
