The first thing to try is a chimera daily build.  The daily builds make 
fewer assumptions about what Linux provides.  However, there is still a 
good chance that chimera will crash in Fedora 11 -- because Fedora 11's 
OpenGL support is based on the latest and greatest Mesa code and as the 
Mesa website says "Those especially concerned about stability may want to 
wait for the follow-on 7.6.1 bug-fix release.".

Currently, we have found that the default NVidia driver does not work, but 
that the driver from NVidia does.  The opposite is true for ATI drivers, 
the default driver works, but the one from ATI fails.  The default Intel 
driver is mostly okay (e.g,. when doing area selections, the selection box 
can appear in a different application's window!).

 	So good luck, and please tell me how it goes,
