[Chimera-users] Chimera 1.5.1 on CentOS 5.5

Hi Yohei,

This is probably because CentOS 5.5 is using an old and buggy version 
Mesa for OpenGL 3d graphics.  We have seen this problem before.  If you 
have a graphics card from nvidia or ati you should install a graphics 
driver from the maker to get much faster and somewhat less buggy 
graphics.  If you have no graphics driver you can try disabling vertex 
buffer objects in the Chimera "Debug Graphics Driver" dialog


If you want to discuss this problem further please use Chimera menu 
entry Help / Report a Bug....  This will give us info on your graphics 
and Chimera versions.


> Hi all,
> I just installed the latest version of Chimera (1.5.1 x86_64) on CentOS 5.5. I'm having a problem with MSMS surface representation. It doesn't show the surface for all the atoms and it just looks messed up. I installed the same version of Chimera on RedHat Linux 5 and it works without any problem. I don't know what the problem is. Does anyone use Chimera on CentOS?
