[Chimera-users] chimera 1.11.2rc crashes

These Chimera crashes are very likely caused by a graphics driver bug.  These are especially common on Nvidia Quadro cards because very few people use those cards so the drivers seem worse than for consumer cards.  You would only use such a card to support stereoscopic rendering with LCD shutter glasses, as you mention.

At any rate, the only thing likely to fix these crashes is to install either a newer or older graphics driver that does not hit the bugs.

If you use Chimera menu entry Help / Report a Bug… you can send us a report that includes your graphics driver version.  We can discuss the problem more through via our bug reporting system.
