[Chimera-users] OpenGL misconfiguration & Nvidia

I recently installed the proprietary Nvidia driver in a Linux box 
(OpenSuse 11.3 64bits) and now every time that chimera start there is a 
warning dialogue saying that there is an OpenGL misconfiguration 
detected.  If I ignore the warning (press YES to continue) chimera seems 
to run fine. So my question is how can I either fix the problem or get 
rid of the warning dialogue?

At the  terminal the following message is displayed when starting chimera

Error: API mismatch: the NVIDIA kernel module has version 256.44,
but this NVIDIA driver component has version 256.35.  Please make
sure that the kernel module and all NVIDIA driver components
have the same version.

  I am not sure which one is "this NVIDIA driver component"  that I need 
to fix and why it was not updated when installing the proprietary driver.


System details:
Chimera version: production release 1.4.1. (for 64 bit Linux)
Card: Nvidia geforce GT 230
Processor: AMD Phenom X6 1090T
OS:  64bit Linux OpenSuse 11.3
