Well I thought I had this figured out, but then my VM broke and I can't get
chimera to run in my VM again.

I am running Vritualbox with a guest system of ubuntu-mate 15.04. I want to
be able to use chimera in the VM for a workshop that we are presenting. I
have installed the 64 bit version for linux. I get:

~> chimera
pci id for fd 4: 80ee:beef, driver (null)
libGL error: core dri or dri2 extension not found
libGL error: failed to load driver: vboxvideo
libGL error: unable to load driver: swrast_dri.so
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for
  Major opcode of failed request:  154 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  3 (X_GLXCreateContext)
  Value in failed request:  0x0
  Serial number of failed request:  751
  Current serial number in output stream:  752

And when I run:
/opt/UCSF/Chimera64-1.10.1/share> python __main__.py
Chimera is misconfigured.  Please reinstall chimera.
