[Chimera-users] v1.1917 OpenGL misconfiguration detected.

Chimera checks /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 and /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1 to see
if they point to the same file or not.  If they do not, then that indicates
that there was an OpenGL driver installation error -- sometimes resulting
in chimera not using the hardware accelerated OpenGL driver.

Could you send the output from:

	ls -Ll /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1

I'd like to confirm that they are different.  And which version of Linux
are your running -- Red Hat 8.0?  Mandrake?  Suse?  Debian?  We'd like to
try to recreate the problem here.
